Bio-Medical Competition Awards Dinner

Greenbelt, Maryland 20700

General Information:  The Bio-Medical Competition will provide students the opportunity to learn about the different bio-medical specialty areas.
In medical school, there are five areas that you study which we are asking the students to identify one area of specialty.  When one becomes interested in
the bio-medical field, they find many interesting career options that are available and impact the lives of their community, family, and friends.

Program: Eight teams of 5 (high school students) will research one of the specific bio-medical specialty fields listed below.  From there, they will then write a
research paper with a 
maximum of three pages, in addition to preparing a brochure, a web page, and a poster board pages display.  At the competition, after the judge scores each group, the team's knowledge will be tested while playing a Jeopardy game based on a set of questions previously provided to each team.  Scoring of the Jeopardy game will be incorporated in the overall competition scoring to determine the winners

Training Workshops: All workshops are held on the 2nd Saturdays of each month beginning in October through January ( 9am - 11am) at
Prince George's Community College, Upper Marlboro, MD 20774.

Each team will choose one of the following topics for research:
