Course Details

Intro to Cell Biology is a 5-day program that enables middle school students to discover the exciting science of cell biology. Participating students work hands-on with PhD research scientists in a professional biotech laboratory to complete laboratory classes and inquiry-based experiments.

"Intro to Cell Biology provides 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, die, move and communicate?
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

The programs fun multidisciplinary curriculum combines science, art, social studies and math to prepare students for success in a broad array of learning environments including extracurricular STEM programs. Participants work with actual cells and learn essential laboratory techniques, gaining a competitive edge for science fairs research. The program also promotes confidence, social interaction and interest in the sciences through inspiring mentors and exposure to real-life science.
