Middle School Education Opportunities

Summer Camps

Each summer the HudsonAlpha Education Outreach team and Sci-Quest, Huntsville’s hands-on science museum, team up to provide several weeks of Biotechnology Camps for middle school students. These half-day camps are available to rising 6th through 9th grade students.

Three different camp options are offered — all housed within the educational spaces at HudsonAlpha. Information about each camp, including dates, descriptions and tuition, can be found on the Sci-Quest website. Biotechnology camps are listed on the downloadable Middle and High School camp listing. Registration for all camps occurs through Sci-Quest in Huntsville, Alabama.

Launching Aspiring Biotechnology Students (L.A.B.S.)

In partnership with the North Alabama Center for Educational Excellence, HudsonAlpha offers the after school program Launching Aspiring Biotechnology Scientists, or L.A.B.S. to equip students with the skills and knowledge essential to the future science, technology, engineering and mathematics workforce.

The goal of L.A.B.S is to equip students with the needed lab and critical thinking skills to work independently in a laboratory setting to answer scientific research questions and take advantage of future lab opportunities. Contact education@hudsonalpha.org for more information
