    LLNL Biotech Summer Experience

    This two-week, half-day program aims to engage high school students in an authentic research project in bioinformatics and molecular biology. It focuses on DNA sequence analyses of genes from a fresh-water aquatic plant that is of interest to the scientific community, Landoltia punctata, and how these genes compare to those found in other species. No laboratory experiments will be performed during this program, but students will gain knowledge and understanding of many techniques used in molecular biology. Students must be a U.S. citizen and 16 years or older by the start of the workshop. Applications are competitive and space is limited. There is no cost to attend the workshop. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher to apply.

    Santa Clara University Pre-College Engineering Programs

    The School of Engineering at Santa Clara University is pleased to present two programs in 2021 available to current high school sophomores and juniors interested in learning more about the field of engineering. The Spring Engineering Education Days (SEEDs) and Summer Engineering Seminar (SES) programs are geared towards students who have not yet committed to future engineering study and who have had minimal exposure to engineering topics due to lack of access.

    Due to the high level of student interest and limited space, SEEDs and SES program acceptance has become highly competitive. Please see each program’s website for more information and deadlines.
