Turtle Camp Research and Education in Ecology (TREE) Program starts!
For two weeks each year, 8 high school students join the graduate and undergraduate students doing research at turtle camp. For these two weeks, these students are immersed in science research. They participate in the ongoing projects associated with the Janzen lab, and have an opportunity to develop their own research projects. Students generate their own questions, are guided through the process of developing a experiment or study that can answer their question, and have an opportunity to present their research to the public. The Turtle Camp Research and Education in Ecology (TREE) Program is a rare opportunity for students of this age to engage in real science. This year’s TREE program started on Monday, and we will get to know these students and their projects over the next two weeks.
