NSU will host Destination Science Camp June 21-25

Northwestern State University’s School of Biological and Physical Sciences will host Destination Science Camp June 21-25. The camp is intended to be an immersive experience that will provide workshops in anatomy, physiology, microbiology, chemistry, physics, veterinary technology, drone technology and natural science.

The camp is for fifth-eighth grade students ages 10-14 and 9-year-olds heading to fifth grade.

“The camp will have some formal instruction, laboratory time and structured activities, but at the end of the day attendees will unwind by competing in quiz bowls, playing board games, eating snacks, and watching movies,” said Dr. Chris Lyles, department head.

The cost is $125 per attendee. Registration includes lab coat and safety googles. Campers must bring their own lunch, but the camp will provide an afternoon snack. Attendees can be dropped off starting at 8:30 a.m. in the lobby of Bienvenu Hall and picked up in Room 211 between 5 – 5:30 p.m. in Bienvenu Hall.

For more information or to request a camp registration packet email Lyles at lylesc@nsula.edu or Whitney Golden at goldenw@nsula.edu. The camp is hosted by the NSU chapter of the American Society of Microbiology and sponsored by the Natchitoches Regional Medical Center Foundation and the Natchitoches Area Jaycees.
