University of California-Los Angeles Sci/Art NanoLab Summer Institute



Conducted at UCLA's California NanoSystems Institute, this rigorous precollege program is a joint venture between the institute and Design Media Arts at UCLA that enables high school juniors and seniors to examine the impact of new sciences (such as bio- and nanotechnology) on contemporary art and popular culture through the completion of a credit-bearing, pass-fail course. The two-week program comprises 80 hours of required lab time, lectures and discussions; 40 hours of field trip time; and daily written compositions that reflect upon lectures and the daily science topic. During the session, boys and girls further benefit from their interactions with undergraduate science students in two different programs: one dealing with design and media, the other with cutting-edge scientific research.
