College hosts summer camp on environmental ecology and science

Penn State Berks will host a hands-on summer camp, dealing with environmental ecology and science on June 23-27, from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm in the Luerssen Building. The five-day camp, designed for students entering grades five through eight, will focus on exploring and learning about the environment-topical areas that include water, recycling, agriculture, and forestry. Participants will work with scientific tools and techniques to determine the health of a stream, safely gather and grow bacteria, conduct experiments with microscopic animals, use the power of observation, and gather clues in solving environmental problems. A chaperoned field trip is planned to offer campers hands-on learning experiences. The cost of the camp is $185 and lunch will be provided. For additional information, please contact Elaine Berish, Continuing Education area representative, at 610-396-6230 or emb1@psu.edu.
