BioSTEM Clubs

Email CEE Icon

As a component of BioUnlimited, BioSTEM Clubs strive to increase awareness of STEM research and career opportunities for underserved students and promote their success in STEM fields.

Why “BioSTEM”?

BioSTEM Clubs are not merely biology clubs; they are interdisciplinary across fields like biotechnology, biomedical engineering, and computational biology.

What makes BioSTEM Clubs unique?


BioSTEM Clubs will implement cost-effective projects that nurture students to gain STEM experience, develop leadership and communication skills, learn about research methods, and develop research projects of their own.
