IDEAS will take place June 16-20, 2014
IDEAS (Inter-Disciplinary Explorations Across the Sciences) is a series of five-day academic camps for high school students to explore five areas of the sciences: agriculture, bio-medical sciences/environmental studies/chemistry, computer science, mathematics/statistics, or physics. Each individual camp is designed to give a college-level experience investigating each particular field. IDEAS provides a look into career options and college plans for those considering a future in these important areas of study. With fun explorations and activities to make each day a great experience, IDEAS is perfect for anyone interested in an excellent way to spend a week of summer!
Detailed information about the program, application process, and faculty leaders are provided below, or to the right under "Dig Deeper." We look forward to receiving your application no later than January 31, 2014.
What former participants are saying:
"IDEAS taught me many things about career choices I wasn't aware of. They did this through hands-on learning with great professors and other students my age. This made it a very fun, knowledgeable atmosphere. I also have to say that it was the most exciting, real-life college visit I have been on. I don't think I'll ever regret it because of the people I met and the things I learned." Madigan M.
"The lessons are interesting and fun, and spending time with new friends during various activities was an added bonus!" Jordan H.
"It made me see math in a different perspective—seeing how statistics are used in business and science and not just in a classroom." Nathan M.
