When other teens talk about how they spent their summer vacation, Copley junior Robert Wagner will be able to say he created a device that could someday save a life.
Wagner, 16, of Fairlawn was one of 13 Northeast Ohio teens who participated Monday through Friday this week in the BioInnovation Academy at the Austen BioInnovation Institute in Akron.
The program was launched to encourage area youth to pursue careers in the biomedical field.
Participants spent eight hours each day learning how to use computer-aided design software, researching the medical device industry and working in teams to create prototypes of new products using a 3-D printer.
