The Stem Cell & Forensics Summer Academy provides students with a concentrated overview of the process of conducting authentic science research. Students will spend five days exclusively engaged in the scientific method. They will learn the skills needed to conduct a literature search, discover the facts about a specific research area in science, and then use what is already known about the topic to formulate an objective and design a procedure. This will be followed by data collection and analysis, ultimately allowing them to draw a conclusion from their results. The week will culminate with a poster session that will simulate a professional research symposium.
