Bothell High School students to participate in Hutch High
November 5, 2012 · 1:14 PM
Bothell High School is one of 30 high schools participating in Hutch High School. Approximately 230 high school science students and their teachers from across the state will visit the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to take a look at some of the world’s leading research labs on Nov. 8.
High school students will attend Hutch High, an innovative half-day science symposium.
Most of the students are 10th graders who might not otherwise have the firsthand opportunity to see inside the world of biomedical science.
Students will isolate and spool DNA, learn the art of micropipetting and use a germ-revealing black light to test their skills at hand washing. Hutch High also involves tours of working laboratories and presentations from Fred Hutch scientists about sickle cell disease, immune systems, chromosomes and how researchers use high-powered microscopes to find new ways to fight cancer.
There is no cost to the schools as the program is made possible by funding from the Michael Miyauchi Foundation.
