Expedition: Bio–A Summer Science Program for Middle School Students

Registration and program information will be added to our website by early April as we are currently revamping our program schedule and curriculum. The program will now consist of two, two-week sessions. The first is set to be held July 9-20, and the August session is TBD. 

Inquisitive by nature? Fascinated by living things and how they work? Then join Whitehead Institute at Expedition: Bio, where curiosity meets real world science, and no question is off-limits.

The two two-week sessions explore the amazing biology that thrives in the world around us. Through immersion in hands-on activities taking students both inside and outside the classroom, laboratory demonstrations, and discussions with scientists, rising 7th and 8th grade middle school students learn how methods from the fields of ecology, genetics, and chemistry are being used to answer some of the most challenging questions in the life sciences today—and have an awful lot of fun doing it!

Expedition: Bio sessions will be held in July and August, 2018. Additional details will be available in early April.

Expedition: Bio program is supported by a generous contribution from the Amgen Foundation, with additional scholarship support provided by Sanofi Genzyme.  

Amgen and the Amgen Foundation support local and national organizations that spark students’ interest in the sciences through inquiry-based hands-on science experiences and that offer professional development opportunities for teachers.
