Welcome to Penn LENS

Students in the Penn LENS program will have the opportunity to get a first-hand look at what goes on in a university science laboratory and/or field setting. Under the direction of the School of Arts and Sciences’ natural science faculty and their graduate students/post docs/staff, they will observe lab procedures and attend group meetings which are essential components of ongoing research efforts. Particular emphasis is placed on computer-based data collection and analysis, as well as reading and communications skills. Participants receive a financial award.

Because of ongoing campus access restrictions due to Covid-19, Penn LENS will be entirely remote this summer. All students will also be awarded a full scholarship to attend a Summer Science Academy whose content complements their lab assignment.
