Alabama Chemistry Olympiad

Alabama Chemistry Olympiad

Alabama Chemitry Olympiad is sponsored by the Alabama Section of American Chemical Society (ACS), CORD and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). High School chemistry students will compete in local (preliminary) testing at their high school. On the basis of the test results, the top 10 students will be invited to compete in the National Chemistry Olympiad Examination at UAB. The 20 highest scoring students on the National Exam will be invited to a paid, 2-week training session at the US Air Force Academy and a chance to represent the US in the International Chemistry Olympiad.

BME Summer Scholars Program

BME Summer Scholars Program

BME Summer Scholars Program is a four-week summer scholars program designed to give students an immersive experience in high-level biomedical research. The program is open to high school students who will be entering their junior or senior years, as well as incoming college freshmen. Participants will work alongside UAB biomedical engineering faculty researchers in labs in the BME Department for a hands-on experience in a real-world setting with world-class BME faculty scientists and clinicians. At the end of each week, the students will come together as a group to share lunch and their experiences, and have the opportunity to hear from BME professionals working in the field.

Summer Science Institute

Summer Science Institute

Summer Science Institute is a multi-summer research experience for high school students interested in learning what it is like to do "real" science. During the first summer in Fundamentals of Cellular and Molecular Biology (formerly Student BioTeach), students are offered a "smorgasbord" of short, 2-3 day, introductory molecular biology experiments. The following summer in Advanced Principles of Biology and Neurobiology (formerly ChemTeach) these same students are invited back to participate in extended, 5-6 day, more focused biochemical investigations on different aspects of a specific, biologically important protein. Finally, during the last summer as Student Research Interns, students are placed in a research laboratory to work on their own original project under the supervision of premier UAB faculty and staff.
