Baltimore UnderGround Science Space (BUGSS)


Are YOU, or do you know any high school students that would be interested in student-driven, team-driven, hands-on learning in the lab solving problems using biotechnology?
Do YOU want to help mentor students, or instruct students while overseeing an incredible project that requires a diverse set of skills beyond lab bench work (including leadership building, design, outreach, public speaking, website development, engineering, and more)?

Please join us Saturday Jan. 20th at 2pm-4pm! This information session will be for those that are interested in joining or just a bit curious and want to learn more. This is an amazing opportunity for students which is far beyond your typical summer lab internship! The International Genetically Engineered Machines (iGEM) competition is an annual event open to undergraduates teams, high school students, and community labs like BUGSS from around the world. Explore the iGEM website:


It’s kind of a big deal, with teams working all year to make their own genetic machines from existing and novel parts. Examples include a rainbow of pigmented bacteria, banana and wintergreen smelling bacteria, an arsenic biosensor, Bactoblood, and buoyant bacteria.

Remember! The team is looking for high school members as well as mentors/instructors.
