In addition to teaching our undergraduates basic research
techniques so they can enter a faculty research laboratory with confidence, the
Research Techniques Facility Workshop (RTFW) is an outreach (afterschool)
program for highly motivated students from the new Manhattan-Hunter Science
High School (MHSHS). Every year, sophomores and a few exceptional freshmen come
to Hunter College and participate in our
workshops. The workshop is offered twice a year (in the fall and spring
semesters), and hosted by the Hunter College Department of Biological Sciences.
