    Leader-In-Training (LIT) Program at Chattahoochee Nature Center

    The LIT program is for rising 10th and 11th graders and is a great way for participants to gain leadership skills, earn service hours, and experience working with children in a professional environment.

    The program consists of three main components: assisting with operating our canoeing operations with our younger campers (ages 5-8), leadership training with the other LIT participants, and directly working with one of our camp groups (ages 4-12). They have two sessions of the program, June 3-28 and July 1-26. They are particularly looking for participants for our July session. Here is the link to their website if you’d like more information!

    miRcore Summer Camps

    miRcore is a non-profit research organization with the mission to democratize medical research. The application for our annual summer camps for highly motivated high school students is now open! Students will have the chance to research with tools that scientists currently use. Our camps provide a great opportunity for students to learn more about the intersection between biology and computer science, and work with other students with similar interests. During the camps, students will learn and engage in computational biology tools, analyzing high-throughput sequencing data, and R programming with machine learning for research. Our camp sessions offered include the Computational Biology Camp (CB), Biotechnology Sequencing Camp (BTS), and R Programming & Machine Learning Camp (R Camp). We also offer a special 3-week Sequencing Your Genome Camp, where students can sequence their own genomes!

    A unique feature of our camps is that following the summer, students can continue their learning experience with the miRcore Volunteer Program, which meets throughout the school year online (remote students) and in person (at the University of Michigan and Scripps Research Institute). Our volunteer program guides students in year-long group research to publish research abstracts and to present at our Annual High School Research Conferences (2024 keynote speaker: Dr. Anthony Antonellis, Chair of the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Michigan). Beyond personal research advances, the miRcore Volunteer Program supports student growth in leadership and healthcare advocacy through student-directed voluntary activities. Volunteers are trained to lead the school club Genes in Diseases and Symptoms (GIDAS), where they teach other students precision medicine and research methods to participate in the Conference. There are also opportunities to get involved in advocacy through miRcore Science Advocacy, where we train students to empathetically share important and sensitive science topics with others, such as genome privacy.

    The flyer attached to this email includes the dates and times for all the 2024 summer camps we offer. Please let students know about this amazing opportunity! MiRcore would love to have motivated students from Milton High School join our camps!
