Girls-in-Science Summer Research Program brings 7th through 9th grade girls to Fontbonne University’s Department of Biological and Behavioral Sciences for two weeks. This two-week program is developed entirely by women scientists in their respective fields to emphasize experimental design, critical thinking and research skills. Topics include genetics, animal behavior, microbiology and parasitology, DNA genotyping, fingerprinting, and forensic entomology. Girls will also stain their own lab coats and experience a taste of college life while making friends from across the St. Louis area.
