A COMO Secondary College student was an ambassador when Scitech launched the World Biotech Tour (WBT), an initiative of the Biogen Foundation and the Association of Science-Technology Centres (ASTC).
The World Biotech Tour is a three-year program where twelve international science centres and museums are selected to highlight biotechnology in everyday life and career pathways.
In Perth, the World Biotech Tour took place during National Science Week kicking off during the Perth Science Festival at the Perth Cultural Centre.
