ATTENTION PARENTS & STUDENTS: The Biotechnology Outreach Program is inviting elementary aged students (Gene-iuses!) to join them on Saturdays to let out the sensational scientist inside them!

What is Saturday Gene-iuses?

Our Saturday Gene-iuses classes are a spin-off from our original Gene-ius Day field trips for elementary schools. Each Saturday Gene-iuses classes brings students and their parents onto campus for 2 hours of exciting, engaging activites that encourage scientific thinking and appreciation for all things science related. Each Saturday Gene-iuses session can accomodate up to 24 students/chaperones.

The program runs all year long and offers a variety of classes to choose from. Each one takes place in a laboratory setting and promises awesome science experiments and activities!
