For students entering grades 7, 8, 9 or 10 in September 2014. (Students who have completed grade 10 science - SNC2D- by July 2014 should enroll in the Advanced Bright Lights program) Do you love asking science questions and designing experiments? Want to learn more about the brain and tinker with nerves and muscles of invertebrates to see how messages travel in bodies? Then you want to be part of the Junior Bright Lights @UTS. This two week program (July 7-July 18) will teach students how to design and perform behavioural experiments on potato bugs, snails, earthworms, fruit flies or cockroaches and dissect specimens to record from their muscles and nerves. You will learn about stimulus-response, signal coding, learning and memory. The camp includes field trips to libraries and labs at the University of Toronto campus where you will understand the importance of written and oral communication in science. The summer camp is hosted at University of Toronto School, 371 Bloor Street West (at Spadina). The faculty to student ratio at the camp will be 1:10 or less to facilitate maximum support and engagement with research projects.
