I-STEM BIOTECHNOLOGY SUMMER SCHOLARS PROGRAM

 
General Information
Description of ProgramOffers students a summer residential/nonresidential laboratory program whose goal in this program is to introduce motivated high school students to the techniques used in modern biotechnology research. The students will begin by learning concepts and techniques as a class but will quickly move to working in small groups or with a partner. We will use lectures by university faculty, library research and model systems such as bacteria, yeast, Euglena, C. elegans and Dictyostelium, to help the students choose and explore topic areas that interest them. Students working in groups will use the information and techniques to develop and test a hypothesis using one of the model systems. The students will present their work to their classmates at the end of the session. A background in biology is required and chemistry is suggested. The students will have the opportunity to live in dormitories on the Stony Brook campus. Residential staff is available at all times. Students will be escorted to and from the lab and supervised during breakfast and dinner and all other activities on campus (including the laboratory, dormitory, library, computer facilities, gymnasium, on all field trips, etc.) with the exception of lunch. Students participate in recreational activities (at the dorms, athletic fields), as well as visit other campus offices such as Admissions and Student Activity Center to learn more about college life. During their stay, students are afforded the opportunity to learn about areas of scientific research from the Stony Brook faculty. Call for more detailed information.
