High School Students Encouraged To Apply To Summer Science Program at Gannon
Posted: May 23, 2016
As a part of Camp Gannon, Gannon University's Summer School of
Excellence encourages students interested in the sciences and who
would like to study health effect related to Environmental Issues,
to apply for the two-week program.
The Summer School of Excellence allows 40 students from the
tri-state area that are current high school sophomores and juniors
to participate in two weeks of intensive laboratory and field site
study in the life sciences. Students work aboard Gannon
University's research vessel, the Environaut, while studying Lake
Erie and Presque Isle Bay.
The program will be held from Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
During the program, students will:
work collaboratively with three Gannon faculty members and five
college students, as well as with fellow high school students who
also have an interest in the sciences.
learn standard methods and techniques for researching
environmental health problems such as water chemistry, lake
pollution and population dynamics, eutrophication, air pollution
and acid rain.
become more familiar with life science applications in medicine,
public health, environmental health, zoology, ecology, limnology,
histology, analytical chemistry and microbiology.
work on college-level lab and research projects.
- explore career opportunities in the fields of chemistry,
biological sciences, medicine and public health.
There is no cost to participate and lunches are provided at no
cost. Students are encouraged to apply on or before June 17. Students must provide their own
