College Biology/AP Biology
An Intensive two-week long workshop conducting Biology experiments in the undergradate biology laboratories at Stony Brook University
Dates: August 4- August 15, 2014 Application Deadline: Applications must be postmarked by June 13, 2014 Cost:
Financial Aid: Limited number of scholarships are available to applicants who are eligible for the Federal free or reduced lunch program.

Students must complete ninth grade and living environment or Chemistry by June 2014 in order to participate.
Lab Hours: Monday - Friday
In the program students will conduct numerous inquiry-based experiments that will prepare them for taking science laboratory courses in college. The laboratory activities dovetail with the Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs and provide an intensive and rigorous exposure to advanced college work. Examples of laboratories from the program include: evolution and phylogenetics, cellular energy and fermentation, information transfer and bioinformatics, and biological systems and physiology. Weeklong projects will focus on reading scientific literature and designing 3D physical models of molecular structures using our rapid prototyping facility.
