Biology Summer Programs
Students drawn to learning how life in all forms of organisms is created, grows and sustains can enroll in summer programs that can take them into a research lab to study molecular and cellular processes, into the woods to examine animal and plant life, up mountains to determine the interactions between Earth and the structure and function of anatomy, along the beach to experience organic chemistry in action, or even under the sea to dive into the study of marine biology. Students might get to witness surgery at a top-rated aquarium, study plant or animal DNA, or meet the experts researching new developments in biochemistry, biomedicine or even synthetic biology. Courses start at one week; some are longer and may offer college credit. Many are held at colleges where you'll get to find out what it's like to live on campus and make friends from all over the world.
