Formulate Your Future, a component of UC San Diego Extension’s Futures program, offers high school students a full-immersion research curriculum with the intent of helping students become academically and technically proficient in advanced molecular biology concepts and their application in a life science research setting. Students will also obtain soft skills such as resume building and interview practice as well as oral science communication skills through poster sessions with local biotech companies. Students will also develop written science communication skills by developing a manuscript of their research. Upon completion of Formulate Your Future, students will earn a UC San Diego Extension an award of completion and pre-college credits along with real-world skills that may lead to internships, professional opportunities or a jumpstart on post-secondary education.
