BioGENEius Challenges

Ages:High School

Type:Submission

Category:STEM

Scope:International

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The BioGENEius Challenges are your opportunity to compete on an international stage with some of the brightest scientific minds in the world. Imagine discovering a cure to a rare disease, optimizing crop production to provide millions more with affordable food, or even culturing new algae to break down water contaminants. We challenge you to explore projects in any of the above, and more, and present your work to industry innovators currently transforming the scientific landscape. n 2015, the Institute announced that the BioGENEius Challenges expanded into three new Challenge tracks, giving students more opportunities than ever before to apply, earn recognition and win awards for their projects:

  • The Global Healthcare Challenge in medical biotechnology
  • The Global Sustainability Challenge in agricultural biotechnology
  • The Global Environment Challenge in industrial/environmental biotechnology

Students come up with new and diverse project ideas in the three competition areas. Judges, selected for their knowledge, talent and experience in each of the three areas, provide tailored feedback to each student’s project. BioGENEius projects focus on the intended or anticipated outcomes of the work, not the process or processes used to achieve them. Students present their scientific biotech related projects to groups professional biotechnologists for awards.
