Past Activities

BIOPHYSICS AND YOUR BODY was a week-long, half-day summer science enrichment program for middle-school students (ages 11-13). Students learned about the field of biophysics and how scientists work in this field. Activities focused on how biophysicists study ears, eyes, skeletal muscles, energy and metabolism and how biophysicists use observations and inferences in their work to study things too small to be seen.
