With the theme of "Our Great Lake," scholars focus on understanding the structure and function of ecosystems, planning a city on a Great Lake, learning the aquaculture of Lake Erie, investigating current environmental challenges to our water quality and more!
Scholars will move out of this world by working on rocketry, space flight and planetary colonization all year. Our goal is to end up with the skills, abilities and aptitudes that will keep us alive – and healthy – in our own life-sized simulation of a Martian settlement!
Focusing on biomedical technology, scholars explore such processes as brain function, body movement, limb replacement and computer-controlled life-support systems – as well as the assistive potential of robots!
Scholars will learn the processes and technologies used in designing, prototyping and making a product from start to finish, with a special focus on laser cutting and 3-D printing!
