Summer Science Institute is a multi-summer research experience for high school students interested in learning what it is like to do “real” science.
The camp promotes students’ interest in and knowledge of chemistry by introducing them to principles, methods, applications, and experiments used in chemistry research laboratories.
Becoming a neuroscientist is hard enough. But some trainees, including minority students and those with disabilities, face different challenges along the way. UAB’s Neuroscience Roadmap Scholars program helps pave the way for their progress. A few scholars share their stories.
Starting from scribbles in early childhood to higher-level complicated geometrical shapes, kids are exposed to artworks at different levels.
The course will cover basic electrical/electronics circuits with main circuit elements, i.e., electrical voltage, current, resistors, etc.
Wouldn’t it be cool to program your own game on the electronic embedded board?
It requires basic programming experience and understanding of computer/smartphone hardware and software.
By the end of the four weeks, the students will have an understanding of basic science research, as well as an understanding of the wide range of career opportunities available in biomedical fields.
Students will learn basic programming skills, algorithms for decision-making, efficient programming techniques through intensive hands-on projects and experiments using Arduino computer boards.
Campers will start soldering copper wires to build artifacts and various geometrical three-dimensional shapes.
