QUINCY —

Thirteen Quincy High School Biotechnical Engineering students were given the opportunity to visit Quincy College’s new biotechnology lab at Saville Hall.

Students involved with the trip, lead by their teacher, Mr. Howard, are enrolled in the school's "Project Lead by the Way" Biotechnical Engineering course.

Chair of the Biotechnology and Compliance Program, Professor Bruce Van Dyke, spoke to students about the program and the biotechnology industry in Massachusetts, conducted various experiments, and lead students through the recently renovated biotechnology lab.

The tour is one of several initiatives through a partnership with Quincy College and the Quincy High School Biotechnical Engineering Programs. Both were awarded grant funding for equipment, future development, and collaboration between the programs.
