Model Organism Zoo

Co-directors: Hasreet Gill and Noel Jackson

Model Organism Zoo is a STEM outreach initiative aimed toward middle/high schoolers in Boston! We take commonly used model organisms in the lab like flies, worms, zebrafish, and cells, along with microscopes and short activities, to schools and community events. We focus on sharing our love for science and demystifying what it means to be a real scientist! To see us in action, check out our website for photos and more information.

MoZ volunteers should: be enthusiastic for communicating science to a general audience. Previous experience working with kids/teens is not required, but helpful.

MoZ volunteers don’t need to: have extensive knowledge of or experience working with model organisms, experience in STEM education.
