Summer Study 1997 - Tuesday, August 12

On Tuesday the 12th of August, we started with the Phase II Scholars going to their special workshops. Phase I Scholars went to an astronomy lab where they learned how far stars are away from the planet earth. Then they went to a lab to do bypass surgery on a sheep heart. The biggest story of that lab was Justin ripped off a sheep heart. When we all came back for lunch we got to meet the members of the DO-IT Advisory Board. Danny Delcombre was a speaker for us. Danny Delcombre talked about how you can never give up no matter what disability you have. Danny is deaf and blind. His speech was voiced by a sign language interpreter. The Phase II'ers listened to Darin & Julie talk about interviewing strategies. they practiced their skits with employers. At the same time Phase I had an on-line treasure hunt. After that we ate pizza, talked to Mentors, & listened to the Trench Coats. Finally we had our evening activities.
