This opportunity is for UCLA students only.

CityLab is a program that provides enriching experiences for UCLA students who wish to step beyond just the research experience. These include opportunities to explore teaching, scientific writing and research careers. CityLab is also a forum for UCLA students to learn effective teaching skills by executing hands-on lab exercises for Los Angeles High School students as well teaching various topics in biology in a classroom setting with other CityLab members.


UCLA students participate in the program as assistants, teaching high school students in a laboratory setting and in the classroom. Undergraduate and graduate students can apply.

Attendance to meetings/sessions are mandatory on Tuesdays and Saturdays of Weeks 4, 6, and 8 each quarter.
