STEM Research Science Camp

Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Research Science Camp

 

Program Mission

The major mission of this one week research camp is to expose current high school students to the various aspects of biomedical sciences and motivate them to consider careers in science. Understanding what is involved in medical research, how the research can make an impact in new discoveries that help cure diseases, or to understand the impact of bioengineering science where novel innovations and products are developed, can help the young mind to decide if this career is challenging enough for them to want to pursue it. 

This all day, week long summer camp is offered through the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the College of Medicine at Rockford and will consist of instruction, hands-on activities and demonstration of cutting-edge technologies used in medical research. Students should expect to be on campus from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

A maximum of twenty (20) students will be selected for this unique invaluable experience. Students must be sixteen years of age by June 1, 2016 to be considered for this program.
