Public Awareness

This year the Frederick High iGEMs team is not only on the fast track to Boston but also to recognition. Purely through word of mouth Maryland senator Ben Cardin came to Frederick High.

The team presented their research on biofuel cells from the previous years and explained in detail why they won their division at last years science fair and what they were currently working on.

Thanks to Cardin's interest in out budding iGEM team, we received some local news coverage. Given this opportunity the team members took the time to also highlight the importance of STEM, expressing how STEM programs such as AP Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, and Calculus were a great chance at getting their feet wet and explore STEM.

This media coverage provoked the local Career and Technology center at Frederick Community College to try making their own iGEMs teams with the aid of Frederick High's non profit organization created by Mark Trice and Dave Rozak.

The Frederick News Posts covered Senator Cardin's time with the iGEMs group.
