Opportunities in Science at Lewis & Clark

High School

Striving to make innovative scientific research accessible and relevant to a wide audience, Lewis & Clark provides several opportunities for collaboration between high school students and our science faculty and majors.

2015 Community Engagement and Leadership in Science (CELS) Summer Program

Welcome!! The CELS Summer Program is an extension of our school year CELS Program’s CELS School Based Science Project and is designed to give promising high school students that participate in our CELS School Based Science Project at our five partner high schools the opportunity to explore a career as a scientist through an 8-week laboratory based research experience. The CELS Summer Program  program emphasizes the collaborative nature of scientific research and as a CELS Summer Scholar, students have an opportunity to be an active and contributing research team member searching for answers to scientific questions along side L&C and OHSU faculty, undergraduate students and other high school scholars.
