Alum Success

Amanda is currently working to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Kansas. Where she is studying the behavior of fossil birds as interpreted through their footprints and other traces. Amanda recently traveled to South Korea to study Early Cretaceous bird tracks and has published two papers on fossil bird tracks, one in the journal Palaios and one in the Journal of Systematic Paleontology. Next, she will study Early Cretaceous fossil birds and bird tracks in China.

"My experience at Lake State, preparing an Undergraduate Thesis and seeing the project through definitely helped prepare me for graduate school. The interaction between the professors and the students at Lake State is far more similar to the interaction between a graduate student and their graduate advisor than the typical undergraduate student / undergraduate advisor rapport; it's much more personalized. It definitely helped prepare me for grad school."

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.
