We are excited to tentatively welcome back grade 8-12 groups (max 20 students) to the BIOlab this fall under COVID-19 yellow restrictions. We will continue to offer online interactive sessions for grades 5-12! We will continue to monitor public health guidelines and school division policies and update BIOlab safety protocols accordingly.
Programming & Booking
Our state-of-the-art lab can host students for half-day experiences in biomedical science. Students have an opportunity to experience the science of health and disease through engaging and authentic hands-on activities. Using basic molecular and cellular biology, DNA work, cell culture, dissections and microscopy, youth will see how their classroom learning connects to current research.
In-lab activities are available for students Grade 8-12, with a capacity of 20 students, from partner school divisions. We also offer online interactive sessions through Zoom, Teams, or Meet for students Grade 5-12 to bring our lessons to your classroom! The length of our programs is flexible to fit your class schedule.
The Youth BIOlab reserves limited spaces for independent schools and others outside of the divisional system, please contact Steve Jones at email@example.com for more information.
We hope you find a program that fits the interests of your classroom, representative examples of curriculum connections and typical BIOlab programming are below. Full activity descriptions will be available shortly. We are always interested in developing new approaches and student experiences with teachers.
