Phase II Scholars, Allison, Jessica, Lucas, Aaliyah, Alicia and Grace participated in a neurobiology workshop. They had the opportunity to participate in two labs on campus. They spent time studying the effects of different drugs on the heart and brain of embryonic mice and the reaction of roach legs to different stimulation. Both of these labs allowed the Scholars to experience real college lab settings. In addition to what they learned in each lab, they had the opportunity to advocate for themselves with university staff.
