In collaboration with the NSF-funded
C2PRISM Program (computation and communication: promoting
research integration in science and mathematics),
Pre-freshman Summer Academic Enrichment Program,
Center for Pre-College Programs,
CCS High School Programming Contest Program,
we work as mentors of high school interns on a variety of
bioinformatics research projects.
The interns are encouraged to apply to our bioinformatics
We also present our research results at local K-12 schools
and C2PRISM-sponsored workshops.
Such presentations are used as a vehicle
for raising public awareness of bioinformatics
and computational biology.
