About us

In the summer of 2007, the Center for Excellence in Environmental Toxicology, Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania launched a community outreach education program for high school students called the Teen Research and Education in Environmental Science (TREES) summer program. The TREES program is a unique hands-on research experience for high school students that introduce them to laboratory science. About seven students are recruited each year from local high schools for the 8 week program. They are taught by graduate student mentors, alumni high school student mentors and faculty members, all of whom volunteer their time to guide the students one-on-one or in the small group.
