BioRocket Internship at GenSpace

The best way to inform 21st-century dialogue about science is to have stakeholders understand it from a hands-on perspective. To this end, Genspace is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting science literacy through citizen access to biotechnology. We provide STEM educational outreach, cultural events, and a platform for science innovation at the grassroots level. BioRocket is our foremost high school education program. It introduces New York City high schooler to fundamental concepts in molecular biology and scientific research through a spring after-school program that then culminates in a 7-week summer synthetic biology research experience. As part of the program, we introduce our students to preeminent scientists from around the city.
