2022 Bioengineering High School Competition (BioEHSC™)


BioEHSC™ is an annual competition at UC Berkeley that immerses teams of 4-5 high school students in a seven-week-long engineering design project. Teams will design a novel bioengineering solution to a current need in biology or medicine. They will present the culmination of their work to a panel of professors, industry representatives, and graduate students in a final research symposium.


By participating in BioEHSC™, students will:

  • explore the cutting-edge world of bioengineering, which BLS data show is one of the fastest-growing fields in the country.

  • network with faculty and students from one of the nations' top-ranked bioengineering programs.

  • understand the engineering design process from idea to implementation, through mentorship and first-hand experience.


Winning teams will receive individual awards, and the potential to win scientific equipment for their respective high schools. BioEHSC™ applications are due by Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022. More information on registration and competition details can be found on our website.

We look forward to having your institution’s students participate in the competition! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at bioehsc@bioehs.berkeley.edu.


Sincerely,

Reet Mishra & Armaan Dwivedi
