Young Women in Biology


Jessica Osuchukwu

Young Women in Biology (YWIB) is a special initiative of Women In Bio, designed to introduce female students to careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). YWIB creates programs and events geared towards encouraging middle and high school girls to consider the life sciences as a career choice. Their events ignite girls’ curiosity in the life sciences while nurturing a business and entrepreneurial spirit.
On March 6, 2017, representatives from the National Institutes of Health came to C.H. Flowers High School to speak to female students from Eleanor Roosevelt, Oxon Hill, and our very own Charles Herbert Flowers High School about neuroscience. They came with a variety of activities, and so much knowledge to share about their experience and research on neuroscience. The students were exposed to new opportunities in the biomedical field and they became acquainted with a real life brain! Overall, this was a wonderful experience.
