Student Shadowing at Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories

Sidebar Image

As an initiative to encourage education and career choices in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields, Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories runs a program in which middle/high school and college students are able to shadow an employee for a day. This allows the student to learn about possible career paths for science degrees.

  • Middle and high school students are allotted 3 hours per day.
  • College students are allotted 6 hours per day and lunch.
  • Shadowing is available on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
    • A maximum of 25 student shadows will be scheduled per month. All students past that amount may be scheduled for the following month.
  • Shadowing days must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance in order for us to find volunteers.

We have many opportunities for students to learn about careers and gain valuable experience! We have both Pharmaceutical and Environmental departments. Descriptions are listed below:
