The Jewell Academy for Women in Science (JAWS) and the Jewell Academy for Men in Science (JAMS) will be hosting free residential summer camps for rising 7th- and 8th-graders on the William Jewell College campus in Liberty, Mo. Thanks to a generous grant from The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the week-long, interactive camps are open to students from across the greater Kansas City metropolitan area at no charge.

The JAWS camp for girls is scheduled to take place June 17-23; the JAMS camp for boys is scheduled for June 24-30. In order to be eligible for participation, students must attend the entire camp. Lodging and meals will be provided for campers in William Jewell’s residence halls and dining facilities throughout the week at no cost. The application deadline is April 9, and 40 slots are available for each academy.

The camp will be based on an interdisciplinary, integrative curriculum focusing on the concept of energy. Specifically, student participants will be exposed to biology, chemistry, ecology, physics, computer science, and bioethics through hands-on laboratory learning. Evenings will feature less-structured science enrichment activities. In addition to the science curriculum, the camp will feature extensive leadership training, goal-setting, teambuilding & cooperation skills, and personal development.

“Overall, the Jewell Science Academies will offer a cohesive, enriching experience with the goal of preparing students for successful academic careers in high school and beyond,” said Dr. Tara Allen, associate professor of biology at William Jewell.

Applicants should be in the 6th or 7th grades (or the homeschool equivalent) during the 2006-07 school year. Students from diverse backgrounds or representing underserved populations are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications can be found online at www.jewell.edu/scienceacademies/. Completed applications should be mailed to:
