    BIO Links Program
    BIO Links is a teaching K-12 outreach program which allows graduate students and postdocs the opportunity to volunteer in local public schools.  BIO Links volunteers are paired with a science teacher from a local school and make a commitment to visit one class per week for nine weeks. Some past volunteers have decided to continue visiting the classrooms well beyond the nine week commitment.
