Gwinnett Tech brings bioscience to high school

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Forty North Gwinnett High School students recently got an up-close look at the field of bioscience, thanks to Gwinnett Technical College.

The Lawrenceville college's Life Sciences Center taught the high schoolers about careers in the fast-growing field.

Professors Herschel Meaders, Dr. Robert Powers, Dr. Mohammed Salameh and Dr. Saphronia Wallace guided the teens through different labs to give them a comprehensive view of bioscience.

"I really enjoyed touring Gwinnett Tech and learning about the different areas of bioscience and biotechnology," North Gwinnett student Anna Raye said. "My favorite session was Dr. Salameh's on protein research."

Gwinnett Tech's Life Sciences Center hosts numerous sessions for young learners throughout the year. Dr. Phil Gibson, director of the school's bioscience program, is currently creating labs for eighth graders at Moore and Sweetwater middle schools.
