Teens to test their biology knowledge
Nearly 900 students from middle and high schools across South Carolina are at Clemson University today to compete in a biology merit exam. Some came from as far as Maryland and Virginia. The event is designed to test the teenagers’ knowledge of biology and, for some, the inspiration to get involved in science. Associate professor Ricardo Garcia started the event in 1979 to give students a sneak peek at college life and to experience ways science can be fun.
