From observing a surgery at an area animal hospital to building and launching a rocket, children age 12-16 will explore science-related topics in laboratory and field-based research classes during the 21st annual Science Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The program, sponsored by UW-Eau Claire's Arts and Sciences Continuing Education/UW-Extension, will be held June 19-30.
Of the 12 classes featured in the institute, students may select from openings in one of the following classes: Action Electronics; Astronomy; Geology; Physics I; Psychology: The Science of Behavior; and Physiology.
University faculty and staff with the aid of teaching assistants teach the 50-hour classes.
After-class activities, such as sports, excursions, crafts and cultural events, will be offered each day.
To participate in the program, students must have completed sixth grade and submit an application with two letters of recommendation and their grade transcripts.
For students staying on campus in dormitory rooms, the cost is $725 for instruction, room and board during the 12-day program. The nonresidential fee is $325 per student.
