Three Effingham County Middle School students were recently accepted into Georgia Southern’s Eagle Science Camp in Statesboro. Their science teacher, Mrs. Carmen Bennett and their math teacher, Mrs. Michelle Wilson, nominated the students. The students are Dallas Vermillion, Austin Brownlow and Hunter Tuttle.
Georgia Southern University sponsors the science camp for students who excel in both math and science and have an exceptional work ethic. The camp is a five-day residential camp, which includes exploratory lab work in geology, chemistry, ecology, mathematics, physics, zoology and computer science. All classes are taught by Georgia Southern professors. The camp will conclude with a scientific conference where students will prepare a PowerPoint presentation using data and photos generated during the week’s lab adventure. Participants will live on campus in Georgia Southern’s dormitories and get an early introduction to college life while being guided by the university’s tour guides.
