Invent the future of global health at UW Bioengineering Summer Day Camp!
About the camp
The 2014 Bioengineering Summer Camp is a unique, 5-day experience for students entering the 9th or 10th grade in the next academic year. During camp, students will learn how University of Washington Bioengineers are tackling global health issues such as malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, and cancer. Together with bioengineering faculty, staff, and students, campers will participate in a hands-on environment that will explore how bioengineers are inventing the future of medicine.
