Class Visits

Biotechnology high school class visits at Edwards Campus

Looking for a way to get your students excited about biotechnology and give them resources to plan for college? Schedule a classroom visit to our campus! Your visit consists of morning activities that involve problem-solving and give students hands-on experience in the lab.

Specially designed for high school juniors and seniors, campus visits are a great way to introduce students to skills they’ll need in college science courses, and get them excited about science!

Students will:

  • Learn how to practically apply biotechnology skills to solve real-world problems
  • Discover steps they need to take in high school to prepare for an undergraduate degree in biotechnology
  • Have a chance to ask questions about biotechnology careers, preparing for college, and degree programs.
  • Have fun!
