This class is perfect for students who are excited about biological sciences and want to learn about potential meaningful career paths outside of clinical medical sciences. Over the course of the 2-weeks, students will be exposed to various areas of Biotechnology, get some hands on experience, listen to guest speakers, go on field trips and explore career options. Students in this course can expect to learn about the scientific process and how that relates to biotechnology. Some possible areas of research they they will get to learn about include Tissue Engineering, Immunology, Virology, Biology, Medicine and many more. They will learn about cutting edge research going on at the CU Boulder campus and participate in an expo at the end of the course where they get to show off a little about what they learned.
