CityLab at UCLA

CityLab is a biotechnology & outreach initiative started in 1998 to increase biological science awareness and improve general science curriculum of disadvantaged LAUSD high school students. CityLab at UCLA is primarily run by UCLA undergraduate students. Our goal is to introduce high school students in the Los Angeles area to the rapidly developing world of biotechnology though hands on laboratory experience. We expose high school students to inquiry-based learning, the scientific process, and critical thinking. We aim to foster an appreciation of and interest in scientific research, while educating students about different career options in science. UCLA students participate in the program as graduate or undergraduate assistants teaching host high school students in a laboratory setting.
