  • Biology- replacing a sheep's heart valve
  • 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

  • WWW page design
  • Creating Camp Courage home page

Schedule Notes

  • It's expected that you will arrive promptly and participate in all program activities. This schedule of daily activities should help you know what is planned and when to be ready! Plan ahead for personal care or transportation needs. If you have special circumstances that require an adjustment to your schedule, request approval from a DO-IT staff member.
  • Complete individual or group projects as assigned. Use time available during open computer labs to complete newsletter articles and other assignments.
  • We have created a wide variety of activities and understand that you will not enjoy all of them equally. However, we ask that you show your appreciation for the people who are contributing their time and talents to this program by keeping an open and respectful attitude.
  • If you require special disability-related accommodations in order to participate in an activity or complete an assignment, request your accommodation needs with the presenter or a DO-IT staff member. Use these opportunities to practice self-advocacy!
  • It is expected that you will abide by all curfews and gather only in designated campus and building locations. In McCarty Hall, please remember that only females are permitted on Floor 2 and only males are permitted on Floor 3 (this includes individual rooms). However, the small lounge on Floor 3 and the computer room in Room 284 are "open" areas.
  • Please be aware of your personal safety during the program. Between McCarty Hall and other campus buildings, always travel in a group of 3 or more.
  • Please carry your room keys, meal card, and Summer Study schedule with you at all times.
  • If you have suggestions for additional activities to add to the schedule, share your ideas with Sheryl Burgstahler, Sara Lopez, or Tracy Jirikowic.
