Do you know a middle or high school student who would love a hands-on research experience this summer, working with modern equipment and using real scientific methods to solve problems?
Register for Gloucester Biotechnology Academy’s SummerSTEM program today! Our exciting, one-week laboratory course is available to middle and high school students ages 12 to 17. No prior science or biotech experience needed!
This summer’s course, Fish Fraud Forensics, combines biotechnology and forensics, only this time the CSI team is investigating a real-world problem about fish: how to identify different species of fish by using biotechnology methods.
Students will play the important part of a scientific investigator! Participants will extract DNA from fresh fish samples and then use modern biotechnology methods to identify their fish specimen. Each student will have their own laboratory manual, where they will record their data and observations.
