Rocky Mountain Laboratory  / BRASS Program

Every spring, the Rocky Mountain Laboratory’s BRASS program is held at Corvallis Middle School. This program brings scientists and students together for amazing hands-on laboratory experiences. BRASS consists of five weekly 2-hour sessions that include topics such as cell biology, infectious diseases, pharmaceutical chemistry, virology, and environmental microbiology.
