Osbourn Park High School starts BioClub Chapter
Osbourn Park H.S. in Manassas, VA is eagerly starting up a new Chapter of BioClub. We already have over 70 students in our club, with more inquiries weekly. Our calendar is already filled with exciting activities including Operation Turkey to help feed hungry families at Thanksgiving time, a trip to a local animal refuge to help with projects and animal care, a trip to the National Library of Medicine to tour their new exhibit, as well as scheduled opportunities to meet scientists from various fields of research in the biological science field. We also have volunteers working community events such as a bone marrow donor drive for a local leukemia patient. Our fundraising plans which include selling spiritwear with our school's Biotech Program logo to raise money to purchase materials for an introductory microarray laboratory investigation, as well as H2O testing in the stream we are adopting. We are excited to get our plans underway, and it promises to be a busy and productive year!!!
