CampBio–A Summer Science Program for Middle School Students

July 19, 2013

Inquisitive by nature? Fascinated by living things and how they work? Then join Science from Scientists and Whitehead Institute this summer at CampBio, where curiosity meets real world science, and no question is off-limits.

Science from Scientists, the leading in-class science/STEM enrichment program in Massachusetts, is excited to be partnering with Whitehead Institute to bring you this week-long exploration into the amazing world of basic biology. Through immersion in hands-on activities, laboratory demonstrations, and discussions with scientists, rising 7th and 8th grade middle school students will learn first-hand how researchers are answering some of biology’s most challenging questions—and have an awful lot of fun doing it!

The program will be held Monday, August 19 through Friday*, August 23 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (lunch included) at Whitehead Institute (9 Cambridge Center, Cambridge, MA).

*Friday’s session will end by 1:00 pm.

CampBio is open to students entering 7th and 8th grade in the fall. Admission requires parental consent. Registration will be capped at 25, and students will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fees: $300 per student.
