Fairchild Wheeler Biotech juniors Annie and Luis qualified to represent Connecticut at the National HOSA competition which takes place in Dallas, TX June 27-30.

Both students placed in the Emergency Medical Technician competitive event (both Annie and Luis are certified volunteer EMTs for Bridgeport.) The first round of competition (local chapters) involves a written test assessing physiological and scientific content knowledge related to assessing a patient in a medical emergency. Only the three highest scoring teams on the written test were able to compete at the state level. At the state competition, Annie and Luis were given a series of hands on scenarios and had to demonstrate proper protocol for each scenario as well as proper use of respiratory and cardiac equipment used by real EMTs.

Annie and Luis again scored among the top three teams at state and qualified to represent Connecticut at the National HOSA competition which takes place in Dallas, TX June 27-30. Let’s help them get there. Please donate at the following Go Fund Me Link.

UCONN First Year Excellence in Innovation Award

Recipient: Christina Valera
Christina, a 2016 graduate of the Bio-Tech School, is a sophomore Physiology major. During her involvement with the Innovation House, she has worked to develop a blood pressure bracelet that automatically tracks blood pressure every two hours and relays this information to an easily accessible app. Christina was inspired by the health issues in her own family and motivated by the fact that many elderly people cannot track their own blood pressure and are alone for long periods of time. The app developed by Christina is able to contact emergency responders if the blood pressure is too high for safe biological function. Christina is also very involved in the Learning Community Innovation Zone through workshops and personal projects.

The Student Spaceflight Experiment Program (SSEP) Mission 11 was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on Sunday. One of the 21 student experiments on board came from four students at the Aerospace/Hydrospace Engineering and Physical Sciences School at the Fairchild Wheeler Interdistrict Magnet Campus in Bridgeport.
The team included Jucar Lopes of Milford, Uchenna Oguagha of Bridgeport, Kiana Laude of Trumbull and Raysa Leguizamon of Bridgeport. Entitled "Microgravity's Effect on Immune System Response of Model Species: An Interaction between Daphnia magna and Pasteuria ramosa," the experiment looks at the effects of microgravity on the human immune system.
