DSU Food Biotechnology Virtual Summer Camp for High School Students

10:00 AM
12:00 PM
Via Zoom

The Summer Food Biotechnology Camp is an exciting STEM program available at Delaware State University. It offers high school students current 8th graders the opportunity to gain hands-on research experience at the college level in the Food Science Program at DSU. The camp is scheduled for August 3 - 7, 2020, 10 AM - 12 PM each day.

Students will be able to learn about food science virtually through experiments performed at home with basic ingredients. Students will learn about topics including COVID-19 and how to make hand sanitizer; yeast and how it’s used to make ginger ale; the properties of food by making gummy bears and ice cream, and other experiments. A list of supplies needed (optional) if students want to participate at home in some or all of the experiments will be emailed a week before summer camp.

Cost: $30
