Germantown and Rockville biology faculty, staff, and students participated in the 4th Annual Frontiers in Science and Medicine Day. Over 600 middle school students from Forest Oak and Neelsville Middle Schools visited biotech companies and participated in hands on science activities at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG). Montgomery College, along with USG, Johns Hopkins, Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, MedImmune, Human Genome Sciences and other biotech companies sponsored the event.

Rockville chemistry faculty members Dr. Virginia Miller and Dr. Nevart Tahmazian demonstrated some cool chemistry. Germantown Instructional Assistant Honore Lekeufack from the Science Learning Center and students Bryan Ching, Janelle Mays, Aaron Banas, Ana lupascu, and Young Lim assisted with the popular DNA necklace activity in which students isolated some of their own DNA and placed it in a small vial that could be worn as a necklace.

This collaborative effort is an opportunity to expose middle school students to and excite them about science research and the career prospects in science, engineering, and healthcare all in Montgomery County.
