Finding Real Solutions for a Better World

One of the hottest career fields today – and in the foreseeable future – is Biotechnology.  It is a growing field that includes several types of scientists, including nutritionists, chemists, agronomists, geneticists and entomologists. They all work together to understand the complicated ideas associated with DNA. 


In this Camp, you will trace the DNA of fruits, vegetables, and you! Learn about the connection between DNA and GMO in Genetic Engineering. You will extract DNA and examine it. You will also trace your own DNA and learn where your ancestors were in the world.


A career in biotechnology can take you to university laboratories, small technology start-ups or some of the biggest pharmaceutical or energy companies in the world. At The Learnatory Biotechnology Camp, you will go behind-the-scenes at a working research lab and discover what it takes to have a successful career on the cutting-edge of science and technology.
