Direct Connect

JCVI’s Direct Connect program was conceived during the COVID-19 pandemic and is designed to allow high school students and in-class educators in the San Diego Unified School District to engage virtually with JCVI scientists, while also providing educators with pre- and post-course information and curriculum they need to help deliver high-quality science lessons.

Topics addressed include climate change, oceanography, microscopy, virology, general genomics and more. This program also includes many aspects of the science behind the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
