CPW and Family Weekend Events
Early April, every year.
Every year, we help represent the Biology department at CPW, to help prefrosh (and curious freshmen!) understand what being course 7 at MIT is like. You can find Bexec members at the Biology Open House and the CPW Academic Expo, and you can see us host the annual Biology UROP panel featuring student panelists. We also represent the Biology department during Family Weekend in the fall at the department's panel for biology students and their parents.
MATLAB Biostatistics Workshop
MathWorks representatives provide a hands-on introduction to MATLAB for biological data analysis. The workshop concludes with a short MicroHackathon challenge. Food is provided.
Outreach: Cambridge Science Festival
We partnered with the Museum of Science at last year's Cambridge Science Festival, helping out with their demos and activities. We look forward to being involved even more in the future!
Last week of IAP.
DEX, Departmental Exploration, is a program held during the last week of IAP to give freshmen information about all of MIT's courses, helping them decide a major. We represent the biology department at official DEX events and have hosted events of our own the past two years, including 2014's Professor Panel and 2013's Student Lightning Lectures. If you have any feedback from past events or ideas for this year's events, we want to hear from you! Please contact Exec with any comments.
Faculty Lunches/ Dinners
BUSA hosts informal lunches and dinners with MIT Biology professors, giving students the opportunity to meet and talk to professors in the department about classes, research, etc.
If you have a professor you want to have lunch with, let us know!
