Bioengineering Bootcamp provides high school students with hands-on experience

Organized by Stanford undergraduate Stephanie Young ’14, the Bioengineering Bootcamp — held at Stanford this summer for the first time — introduced high school students to the bioengineering field through research presentations given by Stanford professors and graduate students as well as hands-on projects. Young’s idea for orchestrating a bioengineering-themed program stemmed from last summer, when she talked with a friend who was coordinating a high school debate camp.
