Project Biotech 2015
Thank you to the students and sponsors who made the PROJECT BIOTECH 2015 camps a success!
Forty-one students from thirty-four different high schools participated in two five-day camps that introduced biotechnology lab skills through DNA analysis, protein assays and exploration of the immune system.
Highlights of the camp can be viewed in these slideshows:
Each camp invited representatives from local biotech companies and non-profit research associations to present their education and career paths on career panels.
