In this camp, we will take a multi-disciplinary approach to learning and incorporate studies in chemistry, oceanography, ecology, and marine biology to learn about Earth's amazing seas and the animals and plants that inhabit them.Campers will begin their week by investigating water and discovering how its unique properties shape our oceans, currents, and biomes both under the sea and at the beach. We'll then shift into marine life and explore food webs and marine adaptations, paying special attention to survival strategies such as mimicry, camouflage, and bioluminescence. Later on in the week, we will take a closer look at the anatomy and physiology of ocean predators - campers will have the opportunity to dissect fish, squid, and sharks to compare their body structures and functions to their niches within the food chain.

We will round out our week by looking at humankind's impact on the ocean as a whole. Campers will engineer an environmental disaster in the form of an oil spill and then brainstorm methods to clean up both the water and the population of affected shorebirds. We will also study water pH, ocean acidification, and its effects on shell-based marine life. -Genetics -Course Description: -In Gene to Genome, students will learn the fundamentals of genetics, centering on the transfer of information through the Central Dogma of Biology (DNA--' RNA--' Protein). Specifically, students will focus on heritable diseases and the mechanisms by which they are inherited. The course begins at the molecular level and zooms out to organismal inheritance and genomic studies.
The course will culminate with a presentation at our very own EU Genetics Conference! Students will take on the role of researchers presenting on a heritable disease to their peers and families, who will take on the role of colleagues in the field.Our courses are interactive, use videos and images, and, most importantly, include hands-on activities such as building model systems using candy and household items, extracting strawberry DNA and observing it under microscopes the students build, and engaging in lab activities and demos in order to explore both the molecular and organismal aspects of inheritance.

Campers will explore careers in genetics on Thursday and see what the praxis of our studies looks like in the professional world. The culminating project will be a presentation to peers and parents on the heritable disease that students have researched as we explore each aspect of our curriculum.Cardiology Course Description: -Scientists will uncover the complexities of the cardiovascular system through a wealth of interactive and inquiry-based experiments, and project-based, hands-on activities. The Cardiology program offers your budding scientists the opportunity to deepen their understanding of body systems. It is the perfect bridge between our Anatomy and Physiology course, and prior to enrolling in Neuroanatomy.Young scientists will explore how the function and structure of the heart impact blood circulation and nutrient transport. In addition, scientists will study the impact of disease on the cardiovascular system. Scientists will have the opportunity to create models detailing anatomy, engineer a heart, and make connections to other body systems that will inspire them to want to investigate more! -In addition, scientists will participate in truly hands-on activities, such as sheep and cow heart dissections!RESPONSIBILITIESIn-person Camp Responsibilities include teaching the Education Unlimited -curriculum, supervising campers both in and out of the classroom, organizing and leading classroom labs, and executing a finale showcasing student work at the end of camp. -Instructors will also be responsible for tracking student work and handing in any deliverables to the camp director and EU home office. -In addition to teaching responsibilities, instructors should be available and willing to assist the camp director with active supervision, recreational activities, and some administrative tasks. Instructors should be mature, reliable, and able to work well with fellow staffers.
