BDSI, BioConnect, & RARE students will be presenting their Summer research projects through oral presentations and poster presentations

RARE students will come to Lehigh for a 2-week* “camp” prior to regular orientation that will be organized in cooperation with the Office of the First Year Experience, the Office for Academic Outreach, and STEM faculty.  The program will include introductions to life science, including responsible conduct of research, safety, the laboratory environment, the research enterprise, exposure to primary literature, information technologies; sessions addressing campus culture, academics, resources, and support services; and social activities. Students participating in the pre-orientation camp will receive a stipend.

On Saturday, July 20, 2019 the HHMI funded summer programs will be returning to America's Grow-a-Row for the third straight year to pick vegetables at this amazing nonprofit farm in Pittstown, NJ. Last year we were able to help collect 1,600 pounds of zucchini and 4,600 pounds of cucumbers. Hopefully we can beat those numbers this year!

Our students have worked so hard this summer. Please join us while they show off what they have learned.
