This year's Pernot Microbiology Camp has finished for the 2023 year. The summer camp was held July 10-14.
The camp's aim is to "provide students with an introduction to microbiological concepts and laboratory techniques relevant to college level curriculum". They focus on teaching students about three subfields of microbiology: Food System Science, Human Health and Disease, and Aquatic Microbiology.
According to the OSU webpage for High School STEM Summer Camps, "students will conduct microbiology focused laboratory experiments, learn critical science skills, go on field trips, including a day trip to the Oregon coast to visit Hatfield Marine Station, and hear from diverse speakers across the field of microbiology about career avenues and opportunities in science, technology, and education."
