2019 BMES Annual Meeting High School Expo & Poster Competition - Call for HS Student Applications

The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) is inviting junior and senior high school students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds in science and engineering to apply to attend the High School Biomedical Engineering Expo at the 2019 BMES Annual Meeting in Philadelphia on Thursday, October 17, 2019. 
Students will have the opportunity to connect with biomedical engineers, students, faculty and industry, get exposure to the biomedical engineering field, and share projects they are working on related to life sciences (biology, chemistry, biotechnology, healthcare), biomedical engineering, or bioengineering. Those selected to present will be eligible for a poster award competition at the Expo and prizes will be awarded to the top three winners.
 
Students accepted and their chaperone will receive a free one-day registration, lunch, and modest compensation to cover ground transportation and/or parking at the convention center.
High school junior and senior students (must be high school junior or senior by the start of the Fall 2019 school year) in the Philadelphia area are welcome to apply. Don't miss your chance to apply by Friday, May 17, 2019.
