CityLab at UCLA is a science educational program run by UCLA undergraduate and graduate students to introduce high school students in the Los Angeles area to the rapidly developing world of biotechnology though hands on laboratory experience. At the same time, it provides a forum for UCLA students to serve as undergraduate CityLab Members, while learning effective teaching skills by instructing the high school students and executing lab exercises in a laboratory setting. The UCLA students may be registered for credit or serve as volunteers.
Applications for High Schools are available for download here. Note the deadline for applications is March 24th, 2013 at 11:59 P.M. Please email applications to the Director of Programming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
