This three-day, hands-on learning experience will take you outdoors, as well as into the laboratory, as you explore the world through the eyes of a scientist!

Day one, you'll spend on Manchester's campus, where you'll explore the Eel River ecosystem, examine the mysteries of chemistry, and learn how human bodies function.

On days two and three, you'll visit the Koinonia Biological Field Station, 12 miles north of Manchester University. There, you're explore the sport and science of fishing in Lake Larrew with a fisheries biologist, and learn about rocketry, aerospace and engineering through designing, building and launching bottle rockets. You'll learn, too, about birds and how they're captured and banded for scientific research. And you'll study with a botanist about common plants of the forest and how they can be used for medicinal purposes or food.
