bright lights in the lab launches in 2013
Last July 42 future scientists joined together in the lab to undertake their own research experiments.
Bright Lights in the Lab enables high school students to experience the full research cycle: conduct literature searches; organize & execute research plans; deliver a report on their findings; meet, collaborate and work with current researchers and academics from the University. In the process, they learn to work productively and creatively in an increasingly complex environment; develop critical problem solving skills; and gain an introduction to the scope of possibilities in a career in science.
The aim of Bright Lights is to enable students to emerge from the program more knowledgeable, skilled, connected and confident with an understanding of the foundational scientific research principles required for success in the lab… today & tomorrow.
