The Johns Hopkins Montgomery County Campus recently hosted 600 seventh-graders for the third annual Frontiers in Science and Medicine Day. The event, which is run in partnership with 17 other research centers, companies and health care organizations, includes an hour of hands-on science and medical activities at the campus and an hourlong lab tour at one of 10 different locations in Montgomery County’s Shady Grove Life Sciences Center. The day is coordinated by staff from Johns Hopkins’ Office of the Provost and Center for Biotechnology Education, which is part of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences’ Advanced Academic Programs.
