Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Camp
for high school students
Monday, June 4 – Friday, June 8, 2018
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 University of Illinois College of Medicine 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.
Students must be 16 years of age by May 1, 2018, to be considered for this program.
Applications are due March 15, 2018.
