Biophysics Across America

For the third year running, the Biophysical Society has sponsored awards for outstanding biophysics-related projects at regional and state high school science fairs across the country.

In 2009 and 2010, BPS provided awards at science fairs local to Annual Meeting sites. After successfully sponsoring Boston-area awards in 2009, San Francisco Bay-area science fair awards were added in 2010. Th is year, the Society extended its sponsorship scope to include the Baltimore area in tandem with the 55th Annual Meeting, including the Washington, DC area, surrounding Maryland counties, and northern Virginia. In addition, this year the Society has provided a BPS award to science fairs where members serve as judges. Members who notifi ed BPS by February 1, 2011, about which local state or regional fair(s) they were interested in judging chose winners and presented Biophysics Awards for the best biophysics-related project at those fairs.

Th ank you to Society members who volunteered to judge at their local science fairs! Didn’t get a chance to volunteer this year? Contact BPS at
