DALLAS, Texas, June 25, 2019 -- TSoG.tv, an online platform dedicated to teaching math, science, and engineering skills to students anywhere in the world, is proud to provide a unique opportunity for viewers to receive a crash course in university-level Physiological Signals and Biomedical Electronics in a single, 24 hour session. Beginning at 10 am CDT on June 29, 2019, Dr. Steven J. Foland, accomplished engineer and educator and creator of TSoG.tv, will teach this course in a live broadcast available exclusively on www.twitch.tv/tsogtv. The 24-hour live stream is free for all viewers to watch; not only will Dr. Foland teach the entire curriculum live, he will be interacting with viewers during this special combination of lecture and laboratory exercises.
Since summer 2015, Dr. Foland, former faculty member and director of the biomedical engineering undergraduate program at UT Dallas, has offered rigorous biomedical engineering summer camps to local high school students interested in this high-impact and rapidly growing field. This 24-hour live-streaming event is part of an initiative to raise funding and awareness toward the goal of expanding this advanced curriculum into a series of open-access live events, planned for worldwide launch in summer 2020. To learn more about the event taking place June 29-30, 2019 and TSoG’s goal to bring the thrill of biomedical engineering to students around the globe in summer 2020, please watch the announcement trailer:
