Student Profile
We are often asked what kind of student we are looking for among our applicants. The answer is simple. We want science enthusiasts with a strong sense of curiosity. When they have free time, our students love to watch TED Talks related to science, or listen to science-related podcasts. They also read articles about scientific research.
 
Some of our students fell in love with science as young children when they went to the Exploratorium or California Academy of Sciences for the first time, or when they received a science experiment kit or chemistry set as a gift. Others discovered their passion for science in school.
 
Many of our students have aspirations to work in a field of science or medicine, while some aspire to go into fields such as law, marketing, business, or finance. Through our program, these students learn how the biotechnology industry is supported by these professions. We also have students who aspire to be educators, computer scientists, filmmakers, and performing artists. Whatever path they take, their science minds will serve them well.
