More than 230 Washington state high schoolers, some from as far away as Okanogan County, arrived on campus early Nov. 4 to attend the 12th annual Hutch High science symposium.

The attendees traveled to the Hutchinson Center from 27 schools to attend a program that offers hands-on laboratory experiences along with valuable information about pursuing a career in science.

Center volunteers guided the students through a range of activities including DNA spooling and micropipetting. Students also used a germ-revealing black light to test their skills at hand washing and heard lectures about bacteria-caused cancers, sickle cell disease and the human immune system.

Hutch High is funded by a grant from the Michael Miyauchi Foundation.
