EdCAAL Seminar: The USA Biology Olympiad and DOE National Science Bowl

EdCAAL is sponsoring a seminar given by Catherine Wang (LHS ‘17) on the USA Biology Olympiad and DOE National Science Bowl, two competitions that are readily accessible at LHS and helped shape her high school career. While at LHS, Catherine competed on DOE’s A team as the youngest and only female player and eventually lead the team to win the national championship in 2017. She self-studied biology and attended the USABO National Finals in 2016 and 2017, earning a gold medal at the International Biology Olympiad as one of the four members of Team USA. She was also named a US Presidential Scholar in 2017. She is now a sophomore at Stanford University studying Biochemistry and Art Practice. In this seminar, she will explain the structure of these competitions, give advice on how to get started, and discuss the pros and cons of participating. She would really prefer not to talk too much about the college admissions process, as that is not the point of this seminar, but will only touch upon it if appropriate. Admission fee:$10 per person; proceeds will be donated to the USA Biology Olympiad program and LHS National Science Bowl team.

Location: Lexington Community Center first floor Cafe, 39 Marret Road, Lexington,MA 02421
