LSSI_Logo_FINALThe Life Sciences Summer Institute (LSSI) nourishes a passion for science and math in San Diego’s next generation of scientists.

SDWP—in collaboration with BIOCOM and the Southern California Biotechnology Center (SCBC) at Miramar College—created LSSI in 2005 to strengthen science and math education in San Diego County and develop a future workforce for the region’s burgeoning life sciences industry. Today LSSI connects high school students with leading San Diego life sciences companies through three paid internships.

Each year more than 300 high school students apply to LSSI for paid summer internship positions with San Diego’s world-renowned life sciences institutions.

Program details:

  • Weeklong “boot camp” covering topics like biotechnology laboratory skills, safety practices and soft skills
  • Mentorship by a scientist and exposure to real-life science practices
  • College credit for the bootcamp at both Grossmont and Miramar College
  • College prep units for their internship through UCSD Extension
  • Micro-badge credential from UCSD Extension upon internship completion
