Biological Sciences

High School Visit Program

Come and Explore

Each spring semester, the Department of Biological Sciences provides the opportunity for high school science classes to spend a day on campus attending a college-level lecture, participating in a lab activity, and talking with faculty and staff about careers in life science. Included in the activities is lunch at Wadsworth Hall.

This past year, 170 high-school students (varying from 9th to 12th grade), from eight different schools, received a warm welcome to our department and Michigan Tech—and also a first-hand look at college academics. Students attended an Anatomy and Physiology lecture, learned about careers in the life sciences, and attended several hands-on laboratories led by our graduate and undergraduate students.

For more information—or to schedule a visit—please contact Travis Wakeham, our high school visit coordinator.

We look forward to your visit!
