Judge at a High School Science Fair and Give a Biophysical Society Award

For the sixth year in a row, BPS will sponsor Biophysics Awards at state and regional science fairs in the United States and Canada. The initiative promotes the teaching and learning of STEM subjects, and raises awareness of biophysics among high school students and teachers.

Last year, this initiative funded awards for 29 students in 12 US states and 1 Canadian province. In 2014, BPS has already committed to plans for sponsoring awards at state and regional fairs in the Boston, Baltimore, Washington, DC, San Diego, Philadelphia, and San Francisco areas.

Don’t live in these areas? Consider giving a Biophysics Award at your local fair! For instructions on how to have BPS sponsor the award go to http://www.biophysics.org/AwardsOpportunities/Volunteer/ScienceFairs/tabid/2284/Default.aspx. You must register the fair with the Society by January 31, so don’t delay!
