At Illumina Learning, we welcome students of all backgrounds and educational experiences. Our Introductory Sciences course cluster is designed for students with limited experience in biology and chemistry. These courses provide a thorough introduction to the major topics and skills in biology and chemistry that will prepare students for more difficult courses. For Illumina Learning classes with recommended prerequisites in chemistry or biology, Illumina Learning's Introductory Science courses are a strong option. Course syllabi is created with our other course offerings in mind.
Our Introductory Sciences courses are taught by the nation's top high school students in biology and chemistry. Our instructors include USABO semifinalists, USNCO finalists, Science Olympiad national medalists, published student researchers, and ISEF finalists.
Each course is 6 weeks long, with weekly classes through Zoom. The small class sizes ensure that instructors are able to provide individualized instruction to each student. Please see the individual pages for each course for more information.
