Education and Outreach

In collaboration with local schools, the Education & Outreach committee organizes opportunities for K-12 students to learn about science and future career opportunities from BBUGS graduate students.

  • Buzz on Biotechnology is an annual open house for high school students, teachers, and parents to learn about innovative biotechnology research, tour Georgia Tech laboratories, and engage in hands-on demonstrations of bioscience and bioengineering concepts.
  • Elementary school science fair judging
  • On- and off-campus outreach for local K-12 schools & summer camps, including lab tours and hands-on demos
  • Mentorship through a biweekly Science Club at partner schools in the Atlanta Public School District.
