Alligators, rockets and crime scene investigations are the topics for three summer programs for students in grades 9-12 offered July 8-26 by the McNeese State University.
The crocodilian biochemistry program offers high school students the opportunity to engage in research to investigate the unique immune system of the American alligator.
The engineering academy offers a broad exposure to engineering disciplines to students interested in pursuing science and engineering careers.
The forensic chemistry academy is designed to engage students in hands-on activities and research related to forensic chemistry and crime scene investigations.
Proposed day trips for the summer programs include Houston’s NASA Space Center and Museum of Natural Science, Avery Island, home of the internationally known TABASCO Pepper Sauce, and New Orleans.
Cost is $1,950 per student and includes campus housing, meals, lab supplies and transportation to off-campus sites.
