The central goal of the Biophotonics Research Academy is to attract underrepresented students, from grades 10-12, into the field of Biophotonics by equipping them with the education and field experiences they need to be successful applicants to post-secondary institutions or industry.
The High School internship for CURE Studentsis available to students that have compleed the CURE program - CURE Summer Cancer Research Program
The High School Biophotonics Research Academy (HSRAB) is a high school enrichment program that demonstrates the relevance of Biophotonics in medicine, industry, and research and that challenges students’ ideas about careers in science. This program engages students in inquiry-oriented activities and research projects. The curriculum is steered by emerging conceptual models of biophotonics, emphasizes information technology, scientific inquiry and biology/physics/chemistry concepts through studying the applied field of Biophotonics.
The Program is a collaborative effort between the Center for Biophotonics Science and Technology (CBST), Center High School, East Oakland Community High School, theEnvironmental Sciences Information Technology Activities (ESITA) project located at theLawrence Hall of Science, and local industries indicating an interest in partnering with the project.
