Science Education Department
Applications for 2022–2023
- Applications for the Science Adventure Lab (grades 4–6) are now available.
- Teachers and administrators can apply for a field trip to the Science Discovery Lab (grades 9–12).
- Please visit this page in early 2023 for information about high school programs in summer 2023.
Our 45-foot mobile science lab brings innovative science education to children at schools across Washington state.
We prepare high school students for careers in biomedical research and healthcare through a year-long academic program at Puget Sound Skills Center.
The Science Education Department is supported in part by the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) Program in the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
We offer high school students from groups that are underrepresented in biomedical research the opportunity to apply for competitive positions in our Research Training Program.
Students can participate in authentic science in a state-of-the-art lab embedded in the research institute.
