Virtual Science enrichment classes 2020

Biopolis is a group of high school students passionate about sharing their love for science with underserved children. We have engaged over 200 students in San Diego with exciting science experiments through various programs, classes, and presentations. Please explore the rest of our website to learn more about the What and Why of Biopolis! 

This summer, we will be holding virtual science enrichment classes to raise funding for our activities during the school year! All of your donations will directly go to serving students in need of quality STEM education and targeting inequality in all fields of science. 

Registration is now closed. Thank you to everyone who enrolled and we hope to see you next year!
