Class Experience

This course covers both the fundamental principles and techniques of molecular biology. Students gain an in-depth knowledge of nucleic acid structure, molecular genetics, and the biochemistry of transcription and protein synthesis. Other topics include how mechanisms of gene regulation play a role in retroviral pathogenesis, embryonic development, and the generation of immune diversity. Each lecture directly relates molecular biology to current laboratory techniques. The laboratory portion of the course represents a complete experimental project. A combination of experiments gives students a broad exposure to several important techniques in molecular biology, together with the direct experience of an intensive research project.

Notes

This masterclass teaches the fundamentals of the fall semester of biology in one week! Students will be amazed by the amount of information they retain using our SciTech Kids methods made easy. It also include a realistic lab experience that will let them perform experiments and practice their skills in a fun and risk-free learning environment.


Covid-19 Precautions

COVID-19 guidelines: All staff and students must be screened using a digital no touch thermometer. Students and staff must wear a mask, practice social distancing and regularly wash their hands.

Loved:

My son was fully engaged for the whole time. It was such a wonderful experience for him. I would highly recommend this and look forward to him doing these classes in person in the future.

Improvements:

If I had to pick something, there were some projects that required some adult help (cutting up some things) that could have done prior to the class. But this is so minor and not really an issue.

About SciTech Kids

SciTech Kids is a STEAM lab that nurtures a love of Science, Technology, Engineering Art, and Math through hands-on experiences that capture children's imagination. We turn the idea of teaching STEAM on its head. Kids learn STEAM and scientific concepts by “doing STEM” that is connected to their everyday life.

SciTech Kids’ curriculum brings STEAM to life through a student-centered approach that uses the power of inquiry and creativity to create captivating science activities.
Our curriculum covers various branches of science including biology, chemistry, physics, paleontology, forensics, electronics, ecology, botany, and astronomy. The kids’ questions and ideas are at the center of the learning experience. Led by our highly trained instructors, classes focus not only on the STEM content and process but also on real-world applications that empower students to become problem solvers.
