The BioBase is located on the 3rd floor of the Lower Eastside Girls Club Center for Community, on 8th street and Avenue D in Manhattan's Lower East Side.
Our lab provides students with a space to conduct in-depth research projects using research-grade microscopes and lab equipment.
Students work together in the lab space to make their own discoveries, guided by PhD and Masters-level scientists.
An amphitheater adjacent to our lab provides a space for group discussion and sharing results of our experiments.
We lead students on sample collection trips in the neighborhood's many community gardens. Samples are brought back to our lab so students can get a closer look under our microscopes.
Students take exploratory trips to the nearby East River to sample the wide variety of organisms that call it home.
