BSU CityLab is a biotechnology learning laboratory for students and teachers, located on the campus of Bridgewater State University (BSU) in Bridgewater, MA.  It was first established as one of several satellites of the original CityLab at the Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM). 

Throughout the school year, BSU CityLab hosts middle and high school classes from area school districts for science outreach programs on topics ranging from health and disease to forensics.  The program modules provide hands-on, inquiry-based laboratory activities using equipment and techniques not often available to pre-University students. 

BSU CityLab is transformed each summer into the Bridgewater Animal Forensic Laboratory (BAFL), the site of a week-long summer program, Whale of a Mystery, for individual middle school age students entering grades six, seven, eight or nine.

Initial funding for BSU CityLab, including development and dissemination of the curriculum modules, has been provided by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  Additional financial support comes from the Bridgewater State University administration through its Center for the Advancement of Science Exploration (CASE) and from BSU CityLab's partner school districts.
