Undergraduate Life at Janelia
node_body | node_body

Our summer scholars participate in a variety of scientific activities outside the lab, including journal clubs and seminars by Janelia researchers and visiting scientists. We also provide numerous professional development opportunities, including workshops on preparing competitive applications for graduate school/graduate fellowships, and presenting effective talks/posters. Students also have opportunities to present their research at lab meetings and at a closing symposium open to the Janelia community.

When not in the laboratory, summer scholars, who live on campus, enjoy a variety of social activities, including barbecues, a 4th of July outing to the Washington DC fireworks display, and other local events. Students plan their own social adventures, which in the past have included camping in nearby mountains, a night at a Washington Nationals ballgame, and a tubing trip down the Potomac River.
