Project SMART (Science and Mathematics Achievement through Research Training) challenges, educates, and motivates talented high school students entering grades 11 & 12 in science and technology. Students will study advanced topics and techniques in animal, human, plant and microbial biotechnology through lectures and discussions.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn the interdisciplinary nature of the field of biotechnology and the applications and implications (economic, social, environmental, legal, ethical and moral) of recent scientific advancements of these tools to society. In addition to learning/doing science, students will gain a greater appreciation for careers associated with this field of science while establishing relationships with peers and gaining mentors with UNH faculty and staff.
