California Northstate University (CNU) is pleased to offer the Focused Interdisciplinary Research and Scientific Training (FIRST) experience to academically talented and motivated high school students.
This one-week immersion experience will focus on conducting interdisciplinary and collaborative scientific research at CNU’s state-of-the-art research facility located at its College of Health Sciences campus in Rancho Cordova. During this week-long immersion, participants will engage and collaborate with college students and distinguished faculty members by focusing on a novel scientific research question. While conducting research, students will participate in scientific discussions, receive training in laboratory skills, and learn about scientific rigor and methodology. The week will conclude with participants giving a professional presentation on their scientific results, with the potential for future publication of participant results. Areas of study may include environmental biology, chemical modeling/drug discovery, and molecular analysis of model organisms.
Tuition: $900 (lunch included)
Date: July 24-28th, 2023
The Biology Education to Careers (BETC) Program at California Northstate University is pleased to offer a series of Workshops supporting an Equipment Loan Program for High School Teachers! These 4-day Summer Workshops focus on biomolecular techniques commonly used in industry and University labs. Attendance at the workshop will make you eligible to participate in the Equipment Loan Program!
Additional professional development workshops are on the way thanks to teacher feedback! We are developing trainings on team-based learning, flipped classroom engagement, collaborative group learning, case-study teaching and much more!
Tuition: Current High School teachers may attend free of charge
Dates: June 13-15th, 2023
