High School Programs

The GenOM Project provides programs for high school students and incoming Freshmen to explore their interests and advance their studies in genomics. Genomics workshops offer high school students an introduction to genomics, and the ALVA summer research program is an opportunity for incoming Freshmen at the University of Washington to probe deeper into this cutting-edge science.

Our Current Programs

descriptionGenomics Workshops »
GenOM conducts several genomics workshops for high school students, both on and off the University of Washington campus. These workshops range from genetic and ethical debates to the ever popular CSI Seattle demonstration. These workshops provide the perfect forum for fostering further interest in science and scientific research.
descriptionGenOM ALVA Summer Research  »
The ALVA program is a wonderful opportunity for incoming freshman, who are attending the University of Washington Seattle campus, to spend the summer performing research in a genomics related field. The nine week residential program provides students with a close knit community while also providing them with training in ethics, math, chemistry and laboratory techniques.
descriptionPartner Programs for High School Students  »
These programs are all wonderful opportunities for high school students interested in science, technology, engineering and math that are sponsored by our partners around the state of Washington and in the Seattle area. We encourage any high school students interested in these experiences to contact the programs directly.

Our Organization

The GenOM Project provides educational and research opportunities for underrepresented minority students interested in genomics. These programs target pre-college and undergraduate students.
