Participants interact with students with similar interests as well as specialists in the science field.

Courses for the 2003 institute include computer architecture/Linux, geology, astronomy, action electronics, aquatic biology, 'SIM Man' physiology, environmental science, veterinary medicine and physics. After class activities such as bowling, swimming, crafts, concerts, excursions and cultural events will be offered as part of the Institute experience.
