Welcome to the 2021 virtual science & engineering symposium

Welcome message from Elizabeth Burnette, Science Department Chair & Dr. Mary Loveless, Science Instructor, Director of Baylor Research

Robotics & Rocketry demonstrations

IN THE NEWS! Baylor's Robotics team won at the State Championship (1st Place Connect Award, 4th Place Robot Games), and also received a presentation award from the UTC Tech Symposium (1st Place Presentation)

Advanced Research: Engineering/BioMedical/Environmental

This year-long course allows students to continue projects initiated in Research I. This rigorous course requires extended hours of work, collaboration with university professors and other researchers, and the production of a poster or scientific manuscript. View a presentation of student work below.

Research I: Engineering

This semester-long course allows students to hone the hands-on skills that were introduced in Molecular Methods or Engineering Design. Students will further their proficiency in techniques associated with molecular and cell biology, engineering design, or advanced computing and begin to work independently. Upon approval of their research proposals, students are expected to begin work on their projects.

Molecular methods

During this semester-long course, students are trained to think like scientists in the context of ongoing biomedical and environmental research projects. Students learn to execute techniques commonly used in cellular and molecular biology labs such as molecular cloning, PCR and quantitative PCR, protein expression systems, bioinformatics, and mammalian cell culture.

More about Baylor's science & engineering Program

Training students to think like scientists is the mission of Baylor Research. We understand that science is not about content or a body of facts that explain the natural world, but instead is a process that we use to generate and confirm new knowledge. This principle of experiential learning guides Baylor Research and is most evident in our laboratory spaces. To learn more click here.
