Take a tour inside a lung cancer cell

Thirty-nine Shorecrest High School students participated in the 17th Annual Northwest Association of Biomedical Research (NWABR) Student Bio Expo on May 19 at Shoreline Community College.

The event provided students with the opportunity to learn about biotechnology, biomedicine and bioethics.

They were among over 330 students from 20 schools across the state who spent the year independently researching a scientific topic and creating a project around it. Many of the Shorecrest students also earned awards for their projects. A list of those who placed or received honorable mentions is below.

The students are advised by Shorecrest honors biology teachers Shelby Bushman and David Svrcek.
