7th graders plan for career in science

ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA9) -- A few students from Redland Middle School got to operate an ultrasound machine and a radiation detector and also learned a little about Alzheimers disease.

The students learned how proteins in the brain are connected to Alzheimers disease. This was all a part of the Frontiers in Science and Medicine program, which gives the students an idea of what it's like to be a scientist for a day. It was an event hosted by Johns Hopkins University based out of Rockville.

The expo gave students a chance to see how all of their STEM education can be used in the real world. It also showed them options for a field study as they continue their education.
