Modular Biology Program

Biology 101

Biology 101 is a modular bioscience education program for students in grades 6-12.  This unique collection of courses covers the same topics as a traditional school biology program, but taught hands-on by professional scientists using an exciting real-world curriculum.

Starting with the fundamental principles of life, Biology 101 builds gradually from basic to advanced topics through a pipeline of independent modules.  Students can select from a catalogue of courses to meet to their unique needs and interests, following completion of the requisite units.

Each module is comprised of five, two-hour classes, taught using real-life research models in a state-of-the-art biotech research facility.  Participants learn core concepts and essential lab skills during engaging lessons that involve lecture-discussions, multi-media presentations, hands-on classes and independent experimentation.

Biology 101 is designed to support a range of levels from first-time bioscience learners to advanced placement students. Our novel real-world approach offers specialized training that can’t be gained in school, to prepare students for higher education and future research internships.

Join today and discover your new found passion for biology!
