AAAHHH!! (Anyone mind helping out a newbie?)
#1
Did I get your attention? Yes? Good, because I'm in distress.

I just got back from a nine-day biotech camp. To be clear, I signed up cause I was bored; I didn't actually think I would find it interesting. Well, I did. I had the time of my life over the past nine days, but now that they're over, I feel lost. I want to learn more, but I don't know where to start. I've been trying to read articles, journals, and whatnot on the topic, but every other word is some crazy science-y word that I've never seen before. On top of this, I'm planning to apply to volunteer at NIH (cause they have a program for high school students) and I don't wanna show up like "PCR stands for polymerase chain reaction, please accept me."

Does anyone have any tips for this desperate teen?

Anything helps. Thanks!

This is a year-old post but I'm responding anyway, in the event you still feel lost.

I would look up YouTube videos on the subjects at hand.

Crash Course is a great YouTube series that covers so many topics, and here's their entire playlist on everything Biology:

Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell is another great channel - though they are more simplified:

Here's a great to-the-point video on PCR:

Basically find stuff like that! You'll end up watching stuff for hooouuuuurrssss.
