Canady + Lortz LLP is proudly sponsoring the Young Women in Bio (YWIB) section of Women in Bio at the 4th USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo in Washington, DC on April 16-17, 2016.
YWIB is a special initiative designed to introduce middle and high school-age girls to careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
At the Expo, YWIB will demonstrate the phenomenon of fluorescence and its applications in biotech. They will explain fluorescence using the visible light spectrum and an array of fluorescent nanoparticles called semi-conductor quantum dots. Participants will have the opportunity to see how fluorescent markers are used to detect certain components of a cell. Participants will be able to observe fixed slides containing animal cells labeled with different fluorescent markers.
Visit the YWIB booth at the Expo and show your support for young women in science and technology.
