Course Details

Intro to Cell Biology is a 5-day program that enables middle school students to discover the exciting science of cell biology, working hands-on with PhD research scientists in a professional biotech laboratory.

Through laboratory classes and inquiry-based experimentation, participating students gain a practical real-world introduction to the following concepts in cell biology:

1. Cell definition – what are cells?
2. Molecular cell composition – what are cells made of?
3. Cell diversity – what different types of cells exist?
4. Cell function – how do cells work?
5. Cellular structures – how do cells form cellular structures?
6. Basic cell properties – how do cells divide to create new cells?
7. Developmental cell biology – how do cells develop from stem cells?
8. Applied cell biology – how are cells used and studied in science, research and medicine

Intro to Cell Biology employs a fun multidisciplinary curriculum combining science, art, social studies and math to impart core skills for a broad array of learning environments. Participating students work with actual cells to learn real-life lab skills and foundational principles that will give them an advantage during science fairs and future STEM education programs. The program also promotes confidence, social interaction and interest in the sciences through inspiring mentors and exposure to real-life science.
