Research-Oriented Courses

At Illumina Learning, we create accessible paths for young students to engage in STEM fields. Our Research-Oriented Courses are designed to introduce junior high and middle school students to the foundations of science research, fields on the frontier of biology research, and important research skills. We prepare students for future science research programs, laboratory experiences, and research projects in high school and beyond.

Our Research-Oriented Courses are taught by the nation's top student researchers and writers. Our instructors include Research Science Institute (RSI) students, Intel Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) finalists, published high school researchers, Scholastic Art & Writing Awards medalists, and other national student leaders.

Each course is 6-8 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.
