summer science expedition

The Summer Science Expedition is a residential program in which A-level students from around the world complete a challenging, hands-on research project in biology or earth science. They work alongside a university researcher in the field collecting data for a conservation project.  Students learn experimental set up, data analysis and report writing from the experts.  Stimulating guest speakers and field trips round out the curriculum.  This expedition helps students with their academic progress, personal development, and motivates them to become scientists themselves... go to page
