June 13 – June 17 | 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm | $195 | 6th-8th grade girls In Echelon Catapult's Anatomy and Physiology course, students will explore concepts of physiology such as biological hierarchy, biochemistry, fluid compartments, homeostasis, cellular variation and specialization. They will then investigate each of the major human body systems and create presentations about diseases in each of these systems. There will be at least 3 labs or activities each day, including a heart dissection, a biomolecule chemistry analysis, and building a take-home muscle model. On the final day of the course, students will apply everything they learned throughout the week to dissect their own frog!
Psychology & Neuroscience
June 21 – June 24| 1:00pm – 4:00pm| $150 | 6th-8th grade girls In our Neuroscience and Psychology course, students will explore the vast complexities of the human mind on cellular, anatomical, and behavioral levels. Students will learn through a series of interactive lectures and activities. Instructors will then guide students through case studies and a sheep brain dissection as they explore the many subdivisions of the human brain and nervous system! Finally, students will discover the intricacies of human behavior as they learn about the fundamental theories of psychology and apply them to social interaction, emotion, and behavior through fun activities and games.
June 27 – July 1 | 1:00pm – 4:00 pm | $195 | 6th-8th grade girls Students will discover the basics of one of today’s fastest evolving computer languages.
