THE 2018 eXPO culmninated May 18th 2018 at Shoreline Community College
the 2018 nwabr student bio expo was A GREAT EVENT!
The mission of the Student Bio Expo is to promote an understanding of bioscience research among high school students. We provide access to scientific resources and engage students in creative ways to demonstrate their knowledge of the disciplines of biotechnology and biomedicine. By connecting students, teachers, scientists, and the general public, we strengthen our life sciences community.
NWABR's Student Bio Expo is a yearlong program that provides a platform for students to learn about and showcase their knowledge of biotechnology, biomedicine and bioethics. This year 300 students participated from 22 Puget Sound schools with 90 science mentors and 40 Judges. It was another great year for the Student Bio Expo!
There are 16 Expo Categories: Art, Career Pathways, Creative Writing, Drama/Dance, Global Health, Indigenous Science, Journalism, Lab Research, Molecular Modeling, Multimedia, Music, Neuroscience, SeaVuria, SMART team (3D-printing), Teaching and Website. This approach reflects the Next Generation Science Standards, based in Personalized Student Learning (students choosing a topic of their own choice) and linked to deep science content plus rigorous technical reading and writing.
Our dynamic Keynote Speaker, Austin Wright-Pettibone, is an Engineer with Juno Therapeutics. He strives to "design and champion socially-beneficial technologies that help make the world a better place," which of course was a captivating message for the student participants.
