Course Details

During Intro to Cell Biology, students explore the exciting science of cell biology through inquiry-based research experiments involving actual cells and animal tissues. This 5-day program is taught entirely hands-on by PhD research scientists in a professional biotech laboratory.

Intro to Cell Biology provides a practical real-world introduction to the following concepts in cell biology:

1. Basic cell biology principles – what are cells?
2. Molecular cell composition – what are cells made of?
3. Cell diversity – what types of cells exist?
4. Cell function – what do cells do and how do cells work?
5. Cellular structures – how do cells form cellular structures (tissues and organs)?
6. Basic cell properties – how do cells divide, die, move and communicate?
7. Developmental cell biology – how do cells develop from stem cells?
8. Experimental (molecular) cell biology – how are cells and their internal components studied
9. Applied cell biology – how are cells applied in science, research, medicine and biotechnology

The programs fun multidisciplinary curriculum combines science, art, social studies and math to prepare students for success in a broad array of learning environments from school to extracurricular STEM programs. Participants learn essential laboratory techniques working with authentic model systems to gain a competitive edge for science fair research.

The program also promotes confidence, social interaction and interest in the sciences through inspiring mentors and exposure to real-life science.
