Winter Science Academy offered at BSU in February

The Center for the Advancement of STEM Education at Bridgewater State University is offering a Winter Science Academy, a four-day program for students in grades 6-8 during February school vacation week.

Participating students will attend the Forensics Institute of Bridgewater (FIB), a hands-on class where students act as crime scene analysts. Working with senior scientists, students will learn how to collect and analyze fingerprints from simulated crime scenes, perform blood type analysis and get closer to solving the mystery using the cutting-edge technique, DNA fingerprinting.

The academy will be offered Tuesday, Feb. 17 through Friday, Feb. 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Center for Science and Mathematics. A program fee of $325 covers all course expenses including lab supplies and materials. The fee does not include lunch or transportation. A limited number of needs-based scholarships are available and the deadline to submit them is Jan. 18.
