This is a reminder the application deadline is approaching for the Lakeside Lab High School College Prep Diatom Course this summer. This is not only a wonderful opportunity to learn about this fascinating group of organisms along side practicing scientists - and to use research grade microscopes - but an opportunity for accepted students to earn up to two college creditsfreefrom the University of Iowa, thanks to the Friends of Lakeside Lab Scholarship Program.
Note this year there are one and two-week options, and students enrolled previously are invited back to deepen their knowledge and research questions.
Space is limited. Note the application deadline is June 1st, and requires a letter of recommendation from the applicant's high school science teacher.
