Children had episodes of very high and very low glucose levels that required hospitalization and could result in coma, seizures and death.

On Saturday 17th September, the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), Women in Engineering (WIE) and RMIT University WIE held a e-sewing/wearable technology hackathon with a focus on assisting individuals with hearing impairment and preventing hearing loss.
The hackathon provided an opportunity to six shortlisted teams to build technology prototypes with limited electronic resources, such as Arduino kits, zigbee modules, accelerometers, magnetometers, gyroscopes, ultrasonic range, proximity sensors and unlimited dreams
Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) was founded in 1904 on the campus of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. The vision of the founders was to create an organization to both recognize the scholastic success of students, and to help electrical engineering graduates find employment and support in their careers.
