CSAT summer science education programs registering students now

Summer Bridge class of 2013

In Summer Bridge, aspiring female scientists explore space, geology, forensic science, environmental science and genes, molecules and medicine with RU  faculty and students.

Registration is underway for two summer programs hosted by the College of Science and Technology (CSAT): Summer Bridge and Camp Invention.

The Summer Bridge Program, set for July 13-18, is a residential experience for rising sophomore, junior and senior high school girls interested in science, technology and mathematics. In Summer Bridge, students explore space, geology, forensic science, environmental science and genes, molecules and medicine through classroom lessons, laboratory experiments and field experiences, all taught by Radford University faculty, who are assisted by current RU students.

According to CSAT Dean Orion Rogers, program participants have stated that their interaction with Radford University faculty and staff has been an exceptional experience as was the residential programming.

"This is a fun, intense introduction to a college atmosphere and campus living environment," he said.  "We encourage the campus community to help connect us with young women interested in the sciences to take advantage of this unique opportunity."

Scholarships to cover program costs are available, courtesy of sponsors and donors, and will be awarded competitively to participants. Application is required and information on the process can be found here.
