Event description

Description

UDSO ChallengeThe HudsonAlpha Educational Outreach team provides several weeks of summer Biotechnology Camps for middle school students. These half-day camps, housed within the educational spaces at HudsonAlpha, are available to rising 6th through 9th grade students.

The UDSO Challenge (Advanced) Middle School Biotech Camp
will be held June 12-16, 2017 from 1:00 pm-4:00 pm daily

During this exciting weeklong camp, young scientists will work together to learn and apply basic molecular biology techniques to design a bio-indicator to detect pollution in the river of a peaceful fictitious land. Students will build on the experience acquired in the previous camp using biotechnology tools and equipment to take their explorations to the next level. Students enter the world of UDSO, using a notebook left behind by a previous researcher to diagnose a water-born illness. Students are tasked with using biotechnology tools to build a system that can let the townspeople know when the water is safe to drink.

Students must have completed the Code of Life Camp (there is a June offering and a July offering) to be eligible for one of two advanced biotechnology camps: UDSO Challenge and/or I Want to Work in a Lab Coat.

Registration will close May 12th, or once we reach capacity.
