UBC Life Sciences Circle

UBC Life Sciences Circle

UBC Life Sciences Circle is an outreach program for high school students. We offer free events to all high schools students who are interested in pursuing life sciences. Our sessions usually consist of a lecture given by a guest lecturer about a topic of their interest. Then we will proceed to further explore this topic either by visiting a lab, doing problem solving activities and discussions. There will be an opportunity for students to mingle with UBC students and ask questions about life science programs/courses, along with general inquiries about university life.
