Version: Summer 2010
Letter from Director
Dear Participants, Dear Parents,
Producing bio-fuels in a chemistry laboratory, following
their own research questions on plant and animal life in
a local creek ecosystem, and diving into math using bi-
cycles will be just some of our summer 2010 program.
The three week campus experience where students live
in college residences here at the University of Idaho is
wrapped in a science research project experience at the
Outdoor Science School in McCall (MOSS) at the begin-
ning of the program and a College Skills Retreat at the
end of the program.
Of course, trips to the aquatic center, restaurants, differ-
ent games and sports, making music, creating a maga-
zine will not be missing either.
This year I am particularly excited to have our Outreach
Coordinators, Greg and Randy, with our project. This
will be their first UBMS summer and they will be staying
with the participants at the college residence and other
lodging places. Greg and Randy look forward to get to
know everybody better and work with our participants
for the years coming.
And as always, feel free to call/email anytime,
