Bay Area BioGENEius Challenge

2013 Amgen Bay Area BioGENEius Challenge

The 2013 Amgen Bay Area BioGENEius Challenge opened for submission in January 2013. Students in grades 9-12 may enter their life science/biotech related regional fair projects as long as they meet the criteria listed on the National competition web site. Applicants do not need to enter a previous fair to qualify for the Bay Area Challenge, however, we encourage students to submit projects from other regional science fairs.
