Sophie Ziliak won first prize in creative writing

On Thursday May 22, 2014 at Shoreline Community College, 265 high school students from Washington schools attended the 14th Annual NWABR Student Bio Expo. NWABR is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that focuses on promoting public trust in biomedical research and its ethical conduct. At the Student Bio Expo students showcase their creativity and knowledge of biotechnology, biomedicine, and bioethics. 

The Expo supports personalized learning by encouraging students to express their knowledge of science through multiple disciplines such as language, art, music, multimedia, dance and lab research. Students work on their projects for several months during STEM related classes, often with the advisement of a professional mentor.

The students present their project to the community at a culminating Expo where they are reviewed by a panel of professional judges. At the Expo, students heard from Damon May, from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, who spoke on Project Violet, toured Shoreline Community College’s Biotechnology Lab, and celebrated the student winners.

Students from Shorecrest High School received awards at the Student Bio Expo, while competing against the area’s best and brightest students. The following students were winners:

First Place - Sophie Ziliak - Forensic Genetics: Scientific Sleuthing

First Place - Zhoulang Li - The Salamander Project

Third Place - Kent Preston - Hyperstorm
