One week TEEN RESEARCH PROGRAM for entering Grades 10-11-12.  Price: $1,150/$995

Can scientists and engineers adapt ideas from nature to solve real-world problems? Discover how scientists are taking inspiration from the natural world to spark innovation in the fields of biology and engineering. Together we will build nature-inspired robots, investigate the science that enables geckos to defy gravity, and even engineer our own design application to address a real-life problem. You will gain skills and knowledge about bio-inspired engineering and design, while adding valuable experience to your college and career pathways. Plus, you will meet UC Berkeley scientist and professor Dr. Robert Full, who developed the Integrative Biology course on which this program is based.

Why are there two prices for this program?

In our effort to broaden participation this summer, we are offering two prices for our Teen Research Programs: the actual cost of the program; and a reduced price, which is subsidized. If you are able to pay the full cost of the program, please purchase at the higher rate. If you cannot afford the actual cost of the program, please use the lower rate.
