The CAPS Bioclub facilitates biology related extra-curricular opportunities and experiences for students across the Blue Valley School District.  There are a range of events that you can be involved in, from biology related competitions and informal biology related social and educational events, to community service project.  Below is a highlight a few of these activities.

Students of all ages who are not currently involved in the CAPS Bioscience Program are welcome to participate. Joining with us in one of these events could allow you to get to know the CAPS Bioscience instructors and students, so that you could better gauge your interest in joining the program in the future.
