SciTech Program in partnership with BGSI

Two-Week Immersive UC Berkeley Science Experience

The College of Chemistry and the Berkeley Global Science Institute present SciTech, which will take place at UC Berkeley. SciTech is for rising high school students (grades 9-12) only.

As a participating student in SciTech, you will enhance your understanding of the problems facing the world, learn about the relevance of science and technology in addressing such problems, and be inspired to pursue careers in science and technology that will ensure your contribution to positively impact the world.

A major component of SciTech will be seminar- and panel-based discussions, in which you will interact with dynamic distinguished scholars, including Nobel Laureates. Participating students will also take advantage of learning opportunities outside of the lecture hall such as hands-on science and technology-based demos, group excursions to tour the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Lawrence Hall of Science, get insight about the college application process from the UC Berkeley Admissions Office, and engage in discussions with UC Berkeley undergraduates, graduates, and faculty mentors.

The SciTech Program is difFerent from other summer camp programs in the following aspects:

Brought to you by an INTERNATIONALLY TOP RANKED college in the world. SciTech is administered and delivered by the College of Chemistry at UC Berkeley and it is led by globally recognized and highly influential faculty. The College's Department of Chemistry is ranked NUMBER ONE in the world.

Immerse yourself in SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY. As a participating emerging scholar, you will listen to compelling seminars from some of the world's best scientists and engineers. You will complement what you learn from them by gaining hands-on practical experience in various fields of science and technology. Every component of the program is tailored to maximize your scientific understanding of the world around you!

Combine general knowledge with cutting edge research. You will observe closely how cutting edge research is performed at a top institution. You will be inspired to someday contribute when the frontiers of science and technology are revealed to you.

Provides invaluable insight about the college application process and college life. Students will have an interactive information session with UC Berkeley's Admissions Office to better understand the application process and admission requirements. Students will also have opportunities to mingle with current UC Berkeley students to solicit their advice on the college application process and to get a better sense of college life.
