Event description
Our biotech summer camps are week-long, half-day camps for rising 6-9th graders. The Code of Life Camp focuses on DNA.

About this event

The HudsonAlpha Educational Outreach team provides several weeks of summer Biotechnology Camps for middle school students. These half-day camps, housed within the educational spaces at HudsonAlpha, are available to rising 6th through 9th grade students.

This Code of Life (Basic) Middle School Biotech Camp will be held June 28-July 2, 2021 from 1:00-4:00 pm daily.*

This Code of Life Camp focuses on DNA. Young scientists begin the week by extracting DNA from a variety of organisms and end the week with a little genetic engineering. Campers learn how the information coded in DNA controls physical traits and investigate how changes in DNA may cause the symptoms of some genetic disorders. Students tour the HudsonAlpha facilities and meet with HA staff. The Code of Life Campers also investigate the many roles of enzymes in living systems. Throughout the camp, students use the equipment found in most science research labs and gain hands-on experience in micropipetting and centrifuging. The culminating experiment has campers creating glow-in-the-dark bacteria.

*HudsonAlpha seeks to provide a safe environment for all our participants and team members. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our region to make a best-informed decision about holding in-person programming for Summer 2021. We will notify our registrants via email if we are unable to host face-to-face activities.

Across all of our programs, HudsonAlpha will follow best-practices for gathering safely. These practices may change based on recommendations from health officials, but currently include reducing overall capacity, social distancing, masking, and frequent symptom/temperature checks.

Students who complete Code of Life Camp are eligible for two advanced biotechnology camps: I Want to Work in a Lab Coat and/or The Secret Lab.

Registration will close May 28th, or once we reach capacity.

 Eligibility and Tuition:

  • Eligible to rising 6th-9th graders
  • $175 tuition is due in full upon registration. Tuition also includes a daily snack and a t-shirt.
