Maine High School Open House

The Jackson Laboratory Headquarters in Bar Harbor, Maine 

The Jackson Laboratory welcomes Maine high school students to visit the Bar Harbor campus in the late spring. This one-day Open House will provide high school students an opportunity to meet and interact with JAX scientists, learn about genetics and genomics research, and participate in hands-on workshops of their choosing.

The Maine High School Open House is open to any high school student in Maine who has a strong interest in biomedical research and who intends to pursue higher education or a career in biomedicine.

 This program is designed for individual student participants, or small groups of students who will most benefit from an on-site experience at The Jackson Laboratory. For example, students who would request a one-day job shadow should attend this program in lieu of a more limited job shadow experience.

For more information, please contact the STEM and Undergraduate Education program staff, listed below.
