The Delaware BioGENEius Challenge

The Delaware BioGENEius Challenge is coordinated by the Delaware Biotechnology Institute.  Local Delaware students in grades 9 through 12 can compete in the Delaware BioGENEius Challenge, which is held in conjunction with three local science fairs – the New Castle County Science Expo, the Kent County Science Fair, and the Sussex County Science Fair.  The winner of the Delaware Challenge competes as a finalist in the U.S. National BioGENEius Challenge with students from around the country. Winners from the U.S. National BioGENEius Challenge will compete in the International BioGENEius Challenge during the same weekend for cash prizes. To participate in the Delaware BioGENEius Challenge, you must be conducting biotechnology* research and must register for one of the three county fairs in Delaware.
