The Student Bio Expo is the culminating event of a year-long science education outreach program. The Expo engaged over 360 students from 19 area high schools in real-world applications of biology. Students developed life-science themed projects with the assistance of a mentor scientist in categories as diverse as art, music, drama, writing and traditional scientific research, applying their own talents to see the connection between science and their own lives and interests.
