Cynthia Littlejohn, a microbiology instructor in The University of Southern Mississippi’s “Survivor: Biology Adventures” summer enrichment camps for students in grades 4-6 and 7-12, goes over a lesson with campers on the university’s Hattiesburg campus.

The overnight camps include interactive indoor and outdoor lab-based activities for students with a keen interest in biology, with additional focus on collaboration and producing leaders successful at achieving a common goal.

Participants learn what it takes to become a scientist by studying the ecology of south Mississippi, collecting and processing water samples and bacterial counts of food and soil and locating and identifying plankton from Lake Byron on the Southern Miss campus. They also engage in a ropes course and ecology activities, canoe Black Creek and learn survival skills.
