Through Project BioEYES, CES students travel under the sea to study the lifecycle of the zebrafish. Project BioEYES is a K-12 science education program which provides classroom-based learning opportunities through the use of live zebrafish.
The mission of Project BioEYES is to foster enthusiasm for science by offering students opportunities to explore life science through real world applications using a hands-on approach to learning.
Classroom units are designed to teach conceptual understanding of life science content and processing skills while exciting children to the thrill of scientific discovery. When children are appointed junior scientists, they participate in a fun exercise that breaks down stereotypes about both science and scientists. The goal is to educate young citizens to think critically and scientifically, thereby impacting future scientists and doctors.
BioEYES is located at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA; the Carnegie Institution for Science in Baltimore, MD; Notre Dame University in South Bend, IN; and Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
