STAR II ( Science, Technology, and Research)

Meets the UC and Cal State A-G Requirement

Prerequisites required: Teacher Recommendation and Application

The objectives of the STAR II class are to introduce students to the complex problems being studied in biomedical and biomedical engineering laboratories. It allows students to learn and master laboratory skills to test possible solutions to these problems, and to develop written and oral communication skills necessary to communicate their findings.

STAR II is a ten-credit (2 classes in one) course in which students are assigned to a research laboratory on the USC Health Sciences or University Park Campuses. Students work on a research project under the guidance of a USC mentor, become familiar with pertinent scientific literature, perform standard analysis techniques, and present their findings in PowerPoint and poster formats. The majority of time, students will be on site at their USC laboratory. They are expected to be in lab Monday though Friday during 5th and 6th periods. They are expected to remain in lab after school hours if their research so demands. Students are expected to participate in the BMES ERC Outreach Program. STAR II is a two-semester (one full year academic year) course. Students beginning in the fall are required to make a commitment for both semesters.
