The Science of Discovery
Contemporary research techniques and theory. Group discussion and college-level laboratory experience. Relevant, cutting-edge topics. High school students throughout the region enjoy doing hands-on science at the Three Rivers Science Symposium. It's a day that will make a huge difference in sharpening your skills, not to mention introducing you to students at the university level - and you are invited to participate!
This fall's symposium will enroll a limited number of highly qualified high school sophomore, junior and senior students. Participation is limited so you can work in small groups with our university faculty. Contact our office today by calling 260-399-8067, or emailing email@example.com, with any questions.
Fall Symposium Topic
Exploration in Marine Science
Marine Biology Directors: Dr. Larry Wiedman, and Mr. Warren Pryor
Ocean Chemistry Director: Dr. Paul Schmidt
Join the science faculty of University of Saint Francis for a day long "dive" into our water world, Earth. This hands on laboratory experience will explore many of the mysteries of the marine realm including:
- Critter predator/prey strategies like brute force, speed, agility, camouflage and mimicry
- Ocean chemistry, that greatest of solutions, including environmental concerns
- What makes marine dwellers so especially adapted to living in the world's ocean
