The Genius Corps is a program that provides accessible lab experiences to middle school students. Founded in 2017, the program has hosted labs that explore topics in biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, engineering, and more.
They are a partnership between institutions of higher education and local middle schools. These partnerships create a place where participants can access high-quality labs and state-of-the-art materials under the guidance of trained faculty and teaching assistants.
The Genius Corps strives to foster advocacy in their students and instill self-confidence. Through experiences in the lab, they create a community that celebrates the strengths of its members and willingly accommodates for all people.
They hope to inspire generations of scientists who will use their unique talents and perspectives to further scientific inquiry.
