Nicole Biddinger - Tri County Technology Center
THEN: A biotech engineering course at Tri County Technology Center allowed Bartlesville High School senior Nicole to combine her love of biology and engineering principles. By signing up for TCTC course, which also includes medicine and biosciences, Nicole
- Confirmed her major in college – biology with an emphasis on health and disease research.
- Earned an internship at Oklahoma State University in the zoology lab, where she studied the effect of climate change on the genetic evolution of water fleas.
