Do you wish you could do more science experiments during the school day? Do you have ideas that you don’t get to test about the living world? Do you want to get started on your future science fair or science symposium that you may be asked to do in school?
Spend a week at San Domenico, designing and conducting your own experiment in life sciences. You will gain valuable skills on how to ask a testable scientific question, how to design, develop, revise, conduct, and repeat an experiment. It will also provide you with an opportunity to work on your research project with a mentor. In the end, you will present and defend your research to your peers and a panel of judges, and have a science project that you could chose to enter at the Marin County Science Fair in the Spring.
