This is designed to accompany a class in high school Biology as a Laboratory Experience. Classes start at 9 am and end at 3:30 each day. Lunch and snack breaks are given throughout the day. All of the supplies, equipment and materials will be provided.
There will be a mix of hands on labs, demonstrations and speakers. The student will be exposed to microscope work, dissection (10 different specimens), the scientific method, as well as learning to write a lab report. We will begin with the scientific method and an introduction to writing lab reports. Each session will build on the process of writing lab reports. They will be given homework related to writing lab reports each night. At the end of the Camp they will have fulfilled the laboratory requirement for High School Biology Lab. If you are reporting it as a credit. I would report it as a quarter credit.
If you are interested in a full High School Biology Credit, I teach the full class with the lab included during the school year at First Baptist Jackson. You can find the information here sciencewithjudith.weebly.com/biology1.html
This biology intensive is geared towards 12-18 years old, or 8-12 grade students. Let Me take the headache out of labs for you. To offer this kind of experience at home you would need to order multiple kits online, plus you would need the equipment and supplies to do the labs, not to mention the dirty mess, nasty smells, cleanup, and wondering if you are doing it right. This is a great value for the experience.
This will be offered in Jackson, TN, June 12-14, 2017 facility to be announced.
