Apply for Young Nebraska Scientists summer camps by May 21

For the fifth summer, Nebraska EPSCoR is sponsoring the Young Nebraska Scientists summer science camps for middle and high school students at Nebraska colleges and universities. The camps include one at UNL, June 17-22.

Participants stay in college residence halls, learn in university science labs with researchers and computer scientists, compete in design contests, and spend their down time with ropes courses, movie nights, campus rec center activities, and more.

The deadline for applications to the Young Nebraska Scientists Summer Science Camps has been extended to May 21.

The camps will take place in June and July.

Middle school camps include “Go Green! Algae for Biofuels” at Doane College in Crete and “Nano: The Science of Small” at Creighton University in Omaha. High school camps include a nano camp, an algal camp, and two computer programming camps. The camp at UNL will focus on the programming language Python.
