Almost 600 Seventh Grade Students Visit Campus for Frontiers in Science and Medicine Day

Almost 600 seventh grade students from Julius West and Montgomery Village Middle Schools converged on campus on October 8 for the second annual Frontiers in Science and Medicine Day. Students spent an hour undertaking hands-on experiments and an hour touring labs at local companies. They also prepped for the day with two pre-events: a pipette challenge at their schools and a class period spent in either the MdBio Foundation Mobile Lab or the J Craig Venter Institute Mobile Lab.
