BioBase Summer Camp 2016

Enrollment is now open for summer camps at BioBase, our community lab inside The Lower Eastside Girls Club! This summer, we will focus on pollution and how we can remove it from the environment using biotechnology. Students will build their own filtration systems by taking inspiration from organisms that are naturally adapted for filtration (including themselves!).

Working side-by-side with Ph.D. scientists, students will use $35,000+ university-grade microscopes in a real lab setting. Students will also engage in a plethora of other scientific practices such dissection and chromatography. Additionally, students will be encouraged to express themselves scientifically, through various outlets, such as art projects, and presentation of models.
