We welcome high school and undergraduate students from local, national, and international schools to our lab and mentor them in conducting research and gain hands-on experience. We are also committed to STEM outreach and have presented at community groups, judged science fairs, demoed at science festivals, and talked at career fairs.

In addition, we partner with Caltech Classroom Connection to team with K-12 teachers. Together we develop clear, strong labs that emphasize the scientific method. We often use live Drosophila specimens and lead experiments to teach observational skills and enforce developmental and genetic concepts.
