Summer Health Science Camp at California Northstate University
At the Summer Health Science Camp at California Northstate University, students won’t be making any volcanoes out of baking soda and vinegar. Rather, the courses focus on real-life application of medical principles, helping high school students strengthen both their understanding of those subjects as well as their resumes. The team of experts behind the camp cover a huge range of topics, from health care laws and careers to emergency triage. Recent additions to the schedule include a course in bioterrorism’s origins and countermeasures and a toxicology class where students discover the origins behind deadly substances. A forensics course taught by a 25-year CSI veteran also discloses how to solve a crime using human tissue evidence, finally letting kids discover who’s been borrowing their hairbrush.
