Science from Scientists is excited to partner with the Whitehead Institute for CampBio, a week-long exploration into the amazing biology that thrives in the world around us.
Through immersion in hands-on activities taking students both inside and outside the classroom, laboratory demonstrations, and discussions with scientists, rising 7th and 8th grade middle school students will learn how methods from the fields of ecology, genetics, and chemistry are being used to answer some of the most challenging questions in the life sciences today—and have an awful lot of fun doing it! *For a full program synopsis visit http://wi.mit.edu/programs/summercamp
