University Internship for SES Biologists:
During the winter break, a group of 12 SES biologists participated in an internship program offered by The Department of Applied Biology / Biotechnology Program at the College of Sciences / University of Sharjah. The internship covered a wide range of biological experiments that reinforce our GCSE and A level Biology curriculum.
This was an excellent opportunity for students to develop scientific skills outside of their normal school environment, to network and to meet other keen students and working professionals in the field of Biology.
Congratulations to the students who participated on their initiative and dedication.
