The High School Undergraduate Research Initiative/Science Undergraduate Research Initiative (HURI SURI) provides equipment and supplies to high schools so that they can teach an innovative college level first semester biology course called Biology: A Molecular Approach (BAMA). Building on a model already developed through the Community College Undergraduate Research Initiative (CCURI), and utilizing many of the strategies already in practice in Jamestown Community College's biotechnology program, the focus will be on helping students understand science as a process. They will be able to perform real world research and witness firsthand the interdisciplinary nature of science. Most importantly, they will discover that what they learn directly relates to what they can do.
This site is designed to be a resource for those either already in the HURI SURI program, or looking to become a part of it.
