The 19th Annual Student BioExpo was held on Friday May 17, 2019 at Shoreline Community College. Student BioExpo is a yearlong program that provides a platform for students to learn about and showcase their knowledge of biotechnology, biomedicine and bioethics.

There are 14 Expo Categories: Art, Career Pathways, Creative Writing, Dance / Drama, Global Health, Journalism, Lab Research, Molecular Modeling, Multimedia, Music, Neuroscience, 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.

Students from David Svrcek’s and Jessica Raman’s Honors Biology classes researched a molecular level biotechnological / biomedical subject and represented the information through a creative project.

34 students from Shorecrest High School were judged at BioExpo, along with 250 other students from schools in the region on their ability to communicate the science concepts through interviews, research papers, and their projects.
