West Bank Campus - Middle School Program
school science class. The activities are designed to captivate the student’s imagination and creativity by giving students unique hands-on experiences while learning about science. In this endeavor, students will have the opportunity to choose custom laboratory modules based on topics they find interesting. Many of the skills developed are highly sought after by industry and higher education.
Each week of the middle school program will follow a format similar to the City Park Campus program, and may include the following topics: laboratory orientation, microscopy, cell structure, cell culture, microbiology, structural biology, DNA, chemistry, chemical reactions, forensics, biochemistry, physics, and math. Middle school program - two unique sessions, one week long each, Monday - Thursday • $125 per session, per student • July 10 - 13 and July 17 - 20
City Park Campus - High School Program
Each module consists of two parts. The first part will introduce students to laboratory practices such as laboratory safety, the metric system, and bacterial growth assays. In the second part of each module, students will undertake cutting edge laboratory experiments based on those classic/basic principles. These activities will introduce students to specific areas of science and are taught by instructors with extensive experience in their respective fields.
What are the Delgado Summer STEAM Challenges?
High school program - two weeks • June 12 - 23, Monday - Thursday • $200 per student
The Delgado Summer Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) Challenges is a summer initiative to provide area 5th - 12th grade students access to innovative theories and techniques found in modern science laboratories. These exciting programs are held at the Delgado City Park Campus Monday through Thursday.
Building Science In this module, students will learn “building science” concepts by performing experiments to understand how our homes work as a system. We will explore how specific materials used for building enclosures function to separate the outside from the inside environment. Additionally, we will explore products commonly found in homes that affect indoor air quality and human health. Students will form teams to design an environmentally responsible home that meets the criteria of topics covered in the camp.
How Did We Get Here? Great scientific breakthroughs rarely happen overnight. However, there are a few historical experiments that paved the way for major leaps in our scientific knowledge. In this module, you will learn about scientists such as Pasteur, Koch, Fleming, and others. More importantly, you will recapitulate their experiments and rediscover the same results as they did at their time in history.

City Park Campus - Middle School Program
Introduction to Microbiology Students will study practical applications of microbiology and its biochemical importance in food production and disease. We will grow and examine bacteria from various samples such as water and food products.
Each week of the middle school program will consist of a unique focus which may include the following topics: laboratory orientation, microscopy, cell structure, cell culture, microbiology, structural biology, DNA, kitchen chemistry, chemical reactions, forensics, biochemistry, physics, math, and digital design using the Fab Lab NOLA. Middle school program - four unique sessions, one week long each, Monday - Thursday • $125 per session, per student • Start dates: June 26, July 10, July 17, and July 24
