The Jan. 25 storm forced a delay until Wednesday and a change of venue for the Kids Tech University program at BGSU, but the program organizers think everything will be even better.
According to the program director Professor Paul Morris, the Kids' Tech University program is intended to simulate a true university experience for the children who are between the ages of 9-12. The change of venue means that the morning talk will now be in a lecture hall in Math Sciences building, while the afternoon activities will be in some of Biology teaching labs in the Life Science Building.
"We want the children to be able to see themselves as future science students at BGSU. Now, they will be in some of the same classrooms and labs that we use for our introductory classes. I think that is pretty exciting," Morris stated.
The program will start off with a story about algal blooms in Lake Erie by Dr. Kane an Associate Professor at Defiance College. The afternoon activities have a focus on the study of organisms in aquatic systems and water quality issues.
"The children will be doing some of the same tasks that we give our first year students," said Morris.
Part of the afternoon activities will also include a tour of the marine lab a facility that is maintained by undergraduates. Registration for the program is still possible through the program's website, http://kidstechuniversity-bgsu.vbi.vt.edu/.
This will be the first of four programs scheduled for 2014. The second is set for Feb. 20.
