Danforth Shines at York University Biophysics Contest


The award ceremony for the York University High School Biophysics contest was held on Friday June 15th at the Life Science Building at York. Danforth knew going in that we had some students in the top 5, but what we didn't know was that we took first and second place along with an honorable mention. Pictured below are Abiali B. (first place) and Ajwad K. (second place) with their certificates. Missing are Maya T. (second place with Ajwad) and Saskia R-S. and Annie D. (honorable mention).

After the award ceremony the students got a tour of some of the facilities at York including the observatory and the antimatter lab. Pictured below are Ajwad and Abiali in the lab.

Danforth is now 2 for 2 in this competition and we are looking forward to the next installment in two years time (unfortunately York does not have enough funds to run the competition annually).  Well done!
