Washington County Technical High School will be working with Fort Detrick scientists and college professors on a summer course focusing on subjects like science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The theme is forensics and students from E. Russell Hicks Middle School, Northern Middle, Springfield Middle, and Western Heights Middle School can apply.
"I'm so excited because it segways very well into what they can do in the future," says Sally Irwin. a biomedical teacher. "Part of the program lead the way biomedical program is a cooperative learning. So the students are already working in groups, they're acting as leaders."
"Well biomedical sciences is a wonderful program because it's very hands on," says Sheri Pryor, a WCTHS junior." It's something I'll have more experience with, and more hands on with DNA and learning about the body. It's something I really love to do."
To apply for this program students can speak with their guidance counselor or go onto Fort Detrick's website.
