We held our first annual STEM Middle School Visit in February 2020, in which more than 130 students from two regional middle schools visited the UVa Department of Biology. Students toured two laboratories and visited several learning booths.


Learning booths included:

Comparative neuroscience of vocal learning

Talk to a scientist

Natural selection (with M&Ms and Skittles)

Genetics of model organsisms

Build a neuron

Backyard brains (video game controller with muscle movement)
