Think students can’t write and don’t get science? NWABR, the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research begs to differ. The 2012 winning entries in their annual “Biomedical Breakthroughs and My Life” essay contest show that 7th and 8th graders get it, and can write about it. Want to get involved? Contact Reitha Weeks, program manager, science outreach or Susan Adler, executive director, through the NWSA directory.
