Alum Success

Prior to my time at Lake State, my professors rarely learned students' names and my classes often felt impersonal. I didn't realize how important that faculty interaction could be until I spent a few weeks here. The personal attention is motivating, often pushing me to work harder than I would have otherwise.

Grades: 9th - 12th

Develop skills in capturing, identifying, and comparing the animal communities, from insects to fish, that live in our local streams, lakes, and rivers. You will gain experience using basic aquatic ecology research techniques and equipment, including nets, traps, seines, and water quality meters. Learn the basics of fisheries science: set fyke nets and minnow traps, practice fish identification, learn to tag fish and predict population size with faculty from the LSSU Aquatic Research Laboratory.

Biomedical Sciences

July 21 - 26, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Learn and experiment in the state of the art science labs at LSSU. Labs will include dissections in the anatomy lab, experiments in the physiology lab, and DNA extraction in the genetics lab. This is an excellent camp for all who are interested in science, medicine, and health. 

Field Ecology and Environmental Science

July 21 - 26, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Field activities will include plant and animal identification, landscape interpretation, habitat analysis, stream quality assessment, mammal tracking, bird banding, aquatic insect analysis, night time insect trapping, and more. You will do background research and work up field samples in our biology labs that you collected. Analyze your data in our computer labs and learn how GIS and other computer applications help in ecology and conservation biology.practice fish identification, learn to tag fish and predict population size with faculty from the LSSU Aquatic Research Laboratory. 

 

Tagging Monarch Butterflies

Amanda Taylor

Amanda Taylor of Byron Center, MI coordinated a large tagged monarch butterfly release at John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids. Through this internship at Michigan Butterflies she was able to educate the public on monarch butterflies, the decline of the species, and steps to help keep the monarch population flourishing. By tagging monarchs it is possible to track them along migration routes and compare data from the release with known migration data to help determine what is effecting the monarch population.
