This camp will show you what's really involved and gives you an understanding of what Forensic Science is all about.

The University of Findlay offers a five-day forensic science summer camp for high school students providing an introduction to the world of forensic science, involving the use of:
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Math
  • Physics

CSI Camp is typically held towards the end of June each year and is open to high school sophomores, juniors and seniors.  Students will stay on campus for the duration of the camp.  Meals will be provided by the University.
 
Students are given the opportunity to use deductive reasoning and scientific skills to uncover and explore the mystery of a series of unsolved crimes using current forensic techniques.

This one-of-a-kind experience allows students to participate in the practical use of biology, chemistry and mathematics to examine evidence left behind at the crime scene and attempt to identify the suspect.
 
Campers also have the opportunity to interact with scientists and investigators involved with forensic science and criminal justice as they further explore their academic future and career opportunities.
 
The camp is directed by faculty in the University’s forensic science, biology and chemistry departments. This is a highly structured camp and faculty members are with students at all times during their stay on campus. 

For more information, contact Phil Lucas, assistant professor of criminal justice and forensic science, at  lucasp@findlay.edu.

USC Jr. Fellows Program
The Center for Applied Molecular Medicine (CAMM) and the Westside Cancer Center (WCC) offer a unique program to promote scientific achievement for upper class high school students interested in clinical or research oncology. We believe that passion, coupled to outstanding aptitude, are the hallmarks for success. This program attempts to further scientific education by incorporating hands-on experimentation in a collaborative environment.

The CAMM Jr. Fellows are presented with one challenge – how to determine which drug is bested suited (most effective) for their mock patient. During this process, the Fellows will become familiar with one of the most important aspects of medicine which currently confronts clinical and research oncologists. Resolution of this challenge will require integration of science, mathematics, and technology. The endpoint is a discussion of their findings with Dr. David Agus.

As Urban TxT strives to create a culture of technology leaders in South Los Angeles, where access to technology is extremely limited. Our summer academy has been successful in starting a community of technology pioneers, who are addressing social issues through the creation of Web Apps. We bring together middle schools, high schools, churches, tech startups, hackerspaces, and universities to help us develop a strong innovative community of inner city Tech Pioneers .

For our summer program, youth (7th-11th graders) are emerged in an intensive high tech curriculum. Over fifteen weeks in the Computer Programing Academy students plan, design, and develop their web apps. We culminate with a Demo Day open to the local community, where students present their projects to judges. Following the conclusion of the summer program students take part in a Stanford College Tour, visit Silicon Valley and the Google Headquarters in Mountain View.

Deadline: April 25, 2013

All Inner-City Arts programs, taught by professional teaching artists, are designed to strengthen language development, develop critical thinking skills, promote literacy and improve learning outcomes overall. Most importantly, children and youth who participate in Inner-City Arts programs see themselves as capable of setting and reaching goals.

CSSSA

The California State Summer School for the Arts is a rigorous, preprofessional, month-long training program in the visual and performing arts, creative writing, animation and film for talented artists of high school age. CSSSA provides a supportive environment in which students hone acquired skills and explore new techniques and ideas for an intense and exciting learning experience. The school was created by the California Legislature, and held its first session in 1987. Its purpose is to provide a training ground for future artists who wish to pursue careers in the arts and entertainment industries in California. The California State Summer School for the Arts is a state agency funded through a unique public-private partnership.

California residents enrolled in grades nine through twelve may apply to attend CSSSA. Students from outside of California may also apply; twenty are admitted each year. Participants are selected in the spring, on the basis of their talent and creativity as demonstrated through assignments and teacher recommendations. The student body is representative of the ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of the state. The admissions process is highly competitive. (Last session approximately one in three applicants in most departments were accepted). Students invited to the school are named California Arts Scholars
