2017

The student ambassador program enlists high school students from around the world to give presentations about dynamic biotechnology topics in their communities and schools to inspire others to get involved. During World Biotech Tour festivals and events, the ambassadors play a key role in facilitating the Lab-in-a-Box activities and/or presenting their biotech topics to the public. At the end of the year, an ambassador is selected based on their active participation throughout the year and their biotech presentations to travel to Tokyo, Japan in 2017 to represent their science center at the Science Centre World Summit (SCWS2017).
