experiences, far away from the typical high pressure, grade conscious, resume filling, over extended, "high-achievers" you may be picturing. I can personally attest that these students are talented, curious well-grounded, kind, and generous, without being smug. They are real thinkers, not all about regurgitating the "right" answer.
SO if you are (or know of) High School students who want to learn about the exciting prospects of synthetic biology and participate, please let us know. Motivated high school students are welcome, but we are especially keen on finding those that may be interested in iGEM but haven’t been able to form a team at their school. (It can be a difficult undertaking due to resource constraints, not to mention the daunting task of actually having to do something that may not be in the textbook). The team will be working at the BUGSS lab in Baltimore City during the month of August with planning taking place now. The team has received sponsorship to cover the registration fee so any new participants would just have to be student members of BUGSS and cover their registration fee to the Giant Jamboree in September (if they wish to attend the jamboree).
