Middle School Programs

Introduction

No other organization enables middle school students to learn authentic science, hands-on in a professional biotech laboratory

Middle school is a crucial time in childhood education when students can begin to disengage from learning. The additional challenges associated with engaging middle school students in science subjects, makes providing your child with inspiring STEM experiences particularly important.

At Pathways to Stem Cell Science, we are striving to tackle these issues by offering exciting opportunities for middle school students to participate in real life science, working alongside inspiring mentors in a professional laboratory environment. Participants learn foundational lab skills and essential biology concepts through hands-on experiences, taught by PhD-level scientists.  There are no other programs which provide this kind of experience to students at such a young age.

From modular biology courses to vacation enrichment programs, we offer a variety of formats for budding scientists to immerse themselves in practical science. Participants get to experiment with mammalian cells and use professional lab equipment, all while gaining the critical skills and knowledge needed to transition into high school education.

To support students at all levels we offer a pipeline of programs that build from basic scientific principles to advanced biotech applications. By learning scientific research method under the guidance of professional scientists, our students also well equipped to complete independent research and compete in science fairs.

Regardless of their prior experience we can help your child gain critical skills, prepare for high school, and discover their passion for science.  Sign up today and set your child on an exciting journey of science exploration.
