BioBase Summer Camp 2017

Enrollment is now open for summer camps at BioBase Harlem @ Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute!  This summer, we will focus on the role of the brain in vision.  Students will learn the mechanics of microscopes, telescopes, and other optical instruments.

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.
