A team of five Heritage students recently won a UC Berkeley Bioengineering Honor Society Competition.

The Heritage High School team of Brendon Chang (junior), Aaron Wong (senior), Annalise Coaker (junior), Raziel Yza Ardaniel (junior), and Zain Memon (sophomore) recently took first place in a UC Berkeley Bioengineering Honor Society Competition (BioEHSC).

Working in groups of four to five, high school students explore and study bioengineering, allowing students to tackle a problem and solution in healthcare during a seven-week competition.

The team won with its presentation of a novel jet injection system, which is intended to help fix problems for people who use needles frequently, but who have medical problems.

Heritage Team A won 1st place video competition at 9th annual BioEHSC™!

We also made it to Honorable Mention in the Medical category.

Team: Zain Memon, Aaron Wong, Raziel Ardaniel, Brendon Chang, Annalise Coaker

Mentor: Shreya Ramesh Coach: Alexandria Dorsaneo
