Nuclear Astrophysics, engineering and math, oh my! These are just a few of the fantastic class offerings available to students who participate in MST @ MSU, a two-week long program on MSU's campus. The camp mixes fun with academics, giving students the opportunity to push themselves academically during the summer while making lifelong friends with students who love learning as much as they do. Commuter or residential options are available. MST is offered for students currently in grades 7, 8, or 9 and at least 12 years old.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
Think you have what it takes to crack the case? The CSI Youth Forensic Science program is a weeklong camp that allows students the chance to live the life of a crime scene investigator. Students learn about the many different areas and skills involved with modern Forensic Science, and then get the opportunity to put their newly acquired skills to the test by analyzing mock crime scenes! Commuter or residential options are available. CSI is offered for students currently in grades 7, 8, or 9 and at least 12 years old.
High Achievers is a program for academically talented students currently in grades 9, 10, 11 or 12, who are seeking to earn college credit while still in high school. Those enrolled in this program will complete a three or four credit honors level college class at MSU in four weeks. Course choices include psychology, calculus, neuroscience, computer programming, and biotechnology. Classes will be taught by top MSU faculty who are widely respected teachers and researchers in their respective fields and students will use MSU's advanced learning technologies in their coursework.
MST @ MSU students in the genetics and biotechnology class learn about DNA and genetic coding. Other class choices include engineering, math, nuclear astrophysics, web design, robotics, story writing and more! STEM subjects are emphasized, and hands-on activities make this enrichment program educational and fun!
CSI Forensic Science students examine a mock crime scene using fingerprint analysis, evidence collection, shoe and tire casting, and blood spatter determination. At the end of the camp, students present their final evidence and analytical results to parents and professors. Real-life applications of science make this camp thrilling for students!
High Achievers students use an ERP cap to measure the electrical activity of the scalp, one of several lab activities that students observed in MSU's high-tech research labs in the Psychology 101 class in summer 2013. Other High Achievers course options include biotechnology, neuroscience, calculus, and computer programming.
