BioME hosts Student Showcase virtually
2020 BioME Student Showcase Recap
On April 15, 2020, BioME organized the second annual BioME Student Showcase. The format was a little different this year, but despite obvious difficulties, the Showcase was held virtually and proved to be a success. 10 college students and 16 high school students were selected to virtually present their original life sciences-related research to a panel of judges in competition for cash and academic prizes.
The BioME Student Showcase & Spring Networking Reception was originally scheduled to be held at Cloudport CoWorking Multispace in Portland, but the in-person event was moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
