I am the one with the kid on my team who had a super sci-fi idea- we  
found enough issues that it just isn't going to be possible. Our team  
is interested in pursuing a problem- the initial info was given by a  
biomedical engineer at VCU who came to speak to the kids- problem is  
people die or get very sick in hospitals due to a secondary infection  
from staff non-compliance in hand- washing (seems small, but causes  
death and illness). Kids have researched the impact of this already.   
System: immune, problem people get seriously ill and die  
unnecessarily. Some devices are in the works- if our kids came up with  
a "unique" ability to warn staff they have not washed their hands (the  
assumption being health care professionals by profession don't want to  
hurt patients by not washing their hands- they just get busy and  
forget.... one of our team members was concerned that this would not  
actually be considered bio- medical engineering- although a bio  
medical engineer expressed it as one of the more important issues in  
the field.  Does anyone have any clue if this would not be considered  
bio-med engineering for any reason? or is their a higher authority  
source we could check in with so we don't waste time.  laura Dysart:)
