About Fridays in the Lab

This program brings selected high school and middle school science classes such as Delaware Valley Friends School (DVS) to the campus on four Fridays during the academic year for interactive laboratory demonstrations, short experiments and lectures. Faculty in the anthropology, biology, chemistry, and geology departments provide laboratory experiences in the areas of neurobiology, molecular biology, forensic anthropology, human evolution, behavior, biodiversity, water chemistry, and mapping.

During each visit, students will also eat lunch in the dorm cafeterias, and take tours of the campus with the emphasis on science facilities.
