Students from Broward County Public Schools Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) participated in a summer camp to increase Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) skills.
High school sophomores attended Tanah Keta, a traditional outdoor camp with activities including rock climbing, water safety programs and critical thinking skills. High school juniors attended camp at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton gaining hands-on experience with the SeaPerch Program learning about submersibles.
Seniors, pictured above, attended the H2O on the Go camp at the Pine Jog Education Center with a focus on environmental research. Students had an opportunity to work with partners including staff from the FAU John D. MacArthur campus, FAU Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute and CES Riverwoods Field Laboratory. Students at the H2O on the Go camp developed an understanding of South Florida water systems working with the scientists. This experience gives students a competitive edge in the fields of life science, engineering, oceanography and research.
