High School Student Opportunities in Biomedical Research
The Science Education Department would like to share information about two opportunities for high school students interested in biomedical research.

Summer Programs for High School Students:

This summer they are hosting the in-person Research Training Program and online Virtual Research Training Program for students in grades 10-12 who have not yet applied to college. The in-person program is open to local students from groups underrepresented in biomedical research. The virtual program is open to local, national, and international students.

The application for both programs will open on Friday, February 18 and close on Sunday, April 3. They will host two virtual information sessions on March 2 & March 18. For more information, please see the attached flyer and visit their website.

Field Trips to SCRI:

The Science Education team is excited to announce that visits to the Science Discovery Lab are resuming in March 2022!

Teachers or school administrators can now apply for a three-hour field trip to the Science Discovery Lab at Seattle Children’s Research Institute. The Science Discovery Lab is a next-generation science classroom, where students in grades 9-12 can do innovative curriculum in a state-of-the-art laboratory embedded in the research institute. All Science Education programs prioritize students who are underrepresented in science and medicine.

During this re-launch phase (March – June), they also encourage applications from schools attended by children of Seattle Children’s workforce. Title-I eligible schools receive priority with funds available for school buses and substitute teacher coverage. For more information, please see the attached flyer and visit their website.
