Camps and Internships
Jurassic Genetics is a two week residential program for high school students that takes place in Barrow at the Ilisagvik College campus. Students work with Barrow Arctic Science Consortium scientists and University of Alaska Fairbanks researchers. They gather samples in the field for analysis and work in a research lab learning genetics and molecular biology using the samples they collected. These activities help them learn about the use of ancient DNA in today’s research. Students may also have the opportunity to take part in cultural activities happening in Barrow. Eligible students must have at least a 3.0 GPA and have completed one year of science with lab, read at or above grade level and be interested in earning a college degree. Students earn university credit upon successful completion of the course.
Jurassic Genetics will not be offered for 2013, but hopes to resume in 2014.
