This learning and research opportunity is for students entering freshman and sophomore years of high school. This program focuses on the study of soil ecology and the microscopic creatures that inhabit our environment. Participants become part of the scientific community by contributing their findings to databases of information gathered by people across the country. At the end of the week, participants’ families are invited to campus to have homemade liquid nitrogen ice cream, and enjoy a presentation of the discoveries made. Attend as a day student or choose our residential option and stay overnight.
