Science Detectives Summer Academy

June 1-6

Deadline for application: April 15

Ages: Students entering the 8th, 9th or 10th grade in Fall 2014.

A FREE, residential camp on the Cameron University campus. Chaperones are on duty 24/7. Meals are included. Limited to 40 participants.

This academy asks, “Is there a growing number of organizations developing resistance to antibiotics?” During the academy, students will be introduced to methods of collecting field samples, isolating microorganisms, genetic and DNA analysis of bacteria, and scientific inquiry while living in the dorms on a college campus. Samples collected at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge will be processed in the Biological Sciences’ labs using state-of-the-art equipment and college-level science procedures. Participants will also be provided opportunities to explore biomedical education through Oklahoma technology centers, as well as healthcare careers in a hospital setting. Evening activities include a swim part, game night, and more.

Sponsored by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, the Science Detectives Summer Academy is a collaborative effort by CU's Southwest Area Heath Education Center (SwAHEC), Department of Biological Sciences, and Department of Education.
