  1. We are very interested in your program. How many students can you host at one session? Most of our students are AP biology level & AP Chem level high school kids who are really crazy about biomedical engineering.

    • Thanks for your interest Charisa! We’re estimating that our classes can fit 10-15 students. We’d love to have you and your students visit our lab. We hope to see you at the opening!

    • Hi Charisa, these workshops are designed to be lead by an instructor, to give you a chance to learn some specific skills or subject. In fact, I’m teaching the first workshop. I hope to see you there!

    • I am looking for classes you might offer to kids ages 10-13 starting in January. Would love if you could give an age range when you post a class if appropriate. Thanks

      • Hi MaryEllen. The way our classes are presented is not geared specifically for children, but many children are capable of learning about basic biology concepts and using lab instruments. It is up to parents’ discretion what their children are capable of doing and learning. We have non-toxic materials in the lab but it is ultimately a parent’s responsibility for their child’s safety. At this time, children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult so they can sign a safety waiver. If you have any other questions please email or visit us between 7:30-10pm tomorrow, December 9th for an Informational Open House. We look forward to meeting you.

    • Hi Stephanie – We will be holding the Basics of Biology class on a regular basis. Our next class will be at some point in January. As soon as registration opens for this class we will post it on the website. Please keep checking our Calendar and Upcoming Classes pages for updates. We will announce this on our mailing list as well, which you can access through the Calendar of Events page. We are looking forward to having you in class!

      • Thank you! I’d love to have my 16 year old get a taste of it before she has to take it in school. Also, she was wondering if you might have something on parasitology in the future as she has a friend who is crazy interested in parasites.

  2. I am interested in molecular biology class. Please let me know when are you going to start the class and what is the cost of the class.
