About F[O]rmulate Your Future


Formulate Your Future, a component of UC San Diego Extension’s Futures initiative, offers high school students the opportunity to explore career and college pathways within the life sciences field. Students develop oral and written science communication skills by crafting a research manuscript and participating in poster sessions with local biotech companies. In addition to engaging in practical and applied research projects, students also obtain soft skills such as resume building and interview techniques in preparation for entrance into the workforce. Upon completion of Formulate Your Future, students will earn a UC San Diego Extension Award of Completion and pre-college credits to use on college applications and resumes.
