Destination Science Camp kicks at NSU  

Destination Science Campers Brennan Dromm, Mason Jones and Aaron Blanchard, from left, donned white coats and did cheek swabs in a biology lab Monday as Northwestern State University’s School of STEM kicked off the week-long science camp Monday.  Campers learned to look for bacteria under a microscope, plate the bacteria and study epidemiology.  Later, they were scheduled to learn about parasites and pathogens. Throughout the week, students ages 10-14 will explore chemistry, zoology, engineering technology, physics, anatomy, physiology, veterinary science, ecology and natural science both in labs and outdoors.
