Interested in giving a Biophysics Award to a student at your local high school? The Biophysical Society can use your help! BPS has sponsored student awards at regional and state science fairs since 2009. This growing initiative, sponsored by the Public Affairs Committee, promotes the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering, and math in US schools, and raises awareness about biophysics at the high school level. In 2014, the Biophysical Society plans to give out the Biophysics Award for the best biophysics-related project at the fairs listed below. To volunteer as a judge at a fair listed below, please contact the Society Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, BPS will sponsor an award at your local fair if you are already volunteering as a judge.
