Biology Students Get Creative at Wake Tech
RALEIGH, N.C. (April 4, 2013) - More than 150 students in biology classes at Wake Tech and Wake Early College put their creativity on display today at Wake Tech’s Northern Wake Campus. The students, some working individually and others in teams, designed 3D models that depict a microscopic process. The competition was designed to promote 3D modeling as a way for students to understand biology concepts that can be hard to understand.
Prizes were awarded to the best designs among both high school and college students.
- Kate Dougherty and Anthony Hernandez, 1st place
- Joshua Lebeda and Erick Holguin, 2nd place
- Danielle Hansen and Becky Weber, 3rd place
Wake Early College:
- Anthony Weeks, Deep Duggal, and Brian Alston, 1st place
- Jensen Collins and Denee Pickett, 2nd place
- Elizabeth Bollman and Akhil Acharya, 3rd place
NC Representative Tom Murry, a member of the Board of Directors of the Wake Tech Foundation and a pharmacist, spoke at the event. “We need more people with science backgrounds in the legislature. Keep up the good work!”
