The submissions will be judged by the ASBMB Undergraduate Affiliate Network Committee, and the best entries will be taken to the USA Science and Engineering Festival. Top finalists who are undergraduates or high school students will receive travel stipends to come to Washington, D.C., to attend the expo.
Get Involved in Outreach
If each ASBMB member agreed to spend just two hours a month in meaningful outreach activities, we could have a major impact on science literacy and the pipeline of future scientists.
So, the challenge to all ASBMB members is this: Find two hours a month and get involved in outreach activities. Over the next six to eight months, we will track member outreach activities and post updates on our Web site. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us about your outreach activities.
