Sports Medicine + Technology + Sports
Merging technology, sports medicine, and data analytics to expose high school student-athletes to science based careers in sports
Empowered Youth Internship is a collaboration between B.I.O. and TEAM. Together, we provide STEM student-athletes with a hands-on case-based internship that exposes them to careers at the intersection of sports, sports medicine, and technology.
The Intern Becomes the Case-study
Interns learn biomechanics and sports film analysis to understand injury.
Sanaa and Jorge, STEM students at Oakland Tech, spend the summer learning principles of physical therapy and sports code to analyze Jorge's ankle injury. At the end of the internship, they present their findings to physical therapists and staff at B.I.O. and TEAM.
"Our goal is to show students that there are many professional opportunities related to sports, both in sports medicine and technology."
Ada Jauregui, Founder, B.I.O.
