  • Computer Science/Mathematics- discovering how math can be useful for finding information in digital images and creating special effects
  • Chemistry and Environmental Studies- participating in lab experiments to determine what's in Lake Washington water and how the water quality has an impact on environmental issues

Phase II Scholars participate in focused workshops and receive computer training on more advanced topics such as

Thanks for making Summer Study 2003 a success!
