Life science is the study of anything and everything that lives or once lived or is almost alive (hello viruses), from single-celled organisms to plants and animals to ecosystems. How do living creatures move, digest food, and think (if they think)? How do they compete or cooperate? How do they change over time?

This camp is for rising 11th and 12th graders who want to explore all aspects of life science. For example, campers will:

  • study microbes relevant to food production and safety
  • make renewable solar batteries that mimic photosynthesis
  • monitor the effects of eutrophication on water quality
  • design better drugs using molecular modeling  
  • learn and use bioinformatics to identify and characterize new life forms
  • study ancient life forms 
  • learn how our brains work and how we make decisions
  • experience how babies acquire language
  • watch bacteria compete for survival in different environments
