Apprenticeship Opportunity

The Apprenticeship Program

(for High School Students)

High School Students who are interested in learning advanced techniques in biotechnology and molecular biology may apply for this after-school program– see the Internship/Co-Op Program page for more details on ‘what to expect.’  Although high school students will be trained alongside college students, the curriculum is less involved and is primarily an instructional / shadowing experience.  In some circumstances, depending on the advanced-level of the student, hands-on experience may be involved.

Science teachers, please contact us to schedule a tour of our lab with your students!

Curriculum Choices:
Please request early dismissal from your school for any or all blocks of time below.

The Apprenticeship Program is a volunteer experience for students who are interested in STEM career fields.  Students will receive an Acknowledgment Award (Certificate of Credit-Hours Accomplished) after a minimum of 75 credit hours (~3 month commitment).

Preferential consideration for acceptance into the Apprenticeship Program will be given to AP students with at least one Letter of Recommendation. 

On a case-by-cases basis, additional days/times in the lab may be offered to students who are actively working on a Science Fair Project. See the “Aptagen Award” Flyer below.

Orientation (on-boarding) starts on the second Saturday morning of January, September, or June (followed by a pizza lunch break). The program is a rolling application process.

NOTE: we do not accept apprenticeship candidates to start during the summer months.
