Pitt Gene Team at Home (virtual)
June 28 - July 23Free
Are you a student at an urban high school and interested in Biology?
If so, the Gene Team program at Pitt would love to hear from you! We are looking for a group of scientific-minded high school students who want to learn more about Biology while collecting data from home! You will be immersed in data collection that contributes to ongoing research questions over the course of the 4-week program. Additionally, we will take time to focus on strategies and skills that will be invaluable for applying to and succeeding in college. No prior lab experience is necessary. Pitt’s Biology Outreach team will provide you with all necessary safety training, scientific background, and instruction and you will work in a team with fellow high school students. All of the data collection will happen at your home or in the environment around your house. Pitt will supply any necessary research tools needed.
You will carry out research and data collection at home, teamed with other high-school students. You will also attend weekly virtual sessions that provide strategies and skills for applying for college. The projects for this summer include at-home molecular and microbiology and ecological studies that you can do in your own yard and neighborhood. You will set your own pace on data collection. There will be daily check-ins and group meetings, but you can collect data around your own schedule.
