Latest Updates: Registrations are now open for Online Biotechnology & Biosciences Summer Program 2022 and Offline Biotech & Pre-Medical Summer School (Kolkata) 2022.
We have been receiving tons of queries related to summer schools and the best summer programs for high school kids over the past couple of years. A significant chunk of queries is related to summer school programs on medical science, life sciences, biology, and biotechnology for high school students. Unfortunately, we had to disappoint those students and parents as we didn’t come across any specialized summer program on medicine or biological sciences in India. So, we decided to take things into our own hands. You asked we listened – presenting the Bioscience and Pre-Medical Summer School Program for High School Students by SHRM Biotechnologies in association with Stoodnt, Inc.

Why Biology and Medical Science?
As we try to understand Life and its different processes, we get to know the complex mechanisms that support our existence. Biology deals with the basics such as tracking of ancestry, general features of plants and animals to more advanced fields as of synthetic drug production, studying and altering genetics, providing upgraded prosthetics and implants. Simple understandings of biology have changed our lives deeply, be it prevention of diseases, breaking of superstitions/misconceptions, better healthcare facilities for infants and expected mothers or senior citizens, development of quality medicines and many more.
