Join Geneskool for a summer of science!

For the first time we are hosting SSP at two locations; in Prince George at UNBC and in North Vancouver at CapU. Join us for hands-on biochemical and molecular biology experiments, exciting guest speakers, and more! This August, you or your teen can gain hands-on lab experience investigating a major crime using biotechnology, genomics, hair and fibre analysis, blood typing, microbiology and microscopy. Get your lab coat on and join us, fellow scientists!

Registration is now open! Thank you for being so interested in Geneskool Summer Science Program.

If you have any questions, please email
