Special Explorations for Teachers and Students (SETS)


An AP Bio group shows off their T-shirts!

Thank you for your interest in our SETS program! Due to our Bench to Bedside grant ending and cuts to our budget and staff, we will not be able to offer SETS opportunities for the 2016/2017 school year after March 28 as our available staff begin to prepare for our summer programs. We do hope to resume the program for the 2017/2018 school year starting September 1.

The SETS program provides an opportunity for teachers to bring their students on campus for a custom designed science experience. Based on the goals and objectives of each teacher, CPET works with UF faculty, staff, and students to create an exciting educational exploration of current research concepts, applications and careers in the fields of science.

The University of Florida is located in Gainesville, Florida in North Central Florida. Situated on 2,000 acres and home to over 46,000 of the brightest minds, the University embraces tradition while fostering continued growth and discovery. The University campus is quite expansive and students and teachers are encouraged to explore the many offerings.

Advanced biotechnology and DNA Science Explorations take place in a teaching laboratory at the UF Cancer/Genetics Research Complex. As a part of the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research, the teaching laboratory offers students the chance to use authentic research equipment in a true academic laboratory.
