S6009: Regenerative Biology in HSSP Summer 2012 (Jul. 08, 2012)
Haven't you ever wondered how certain organisms have the natural ability to regenerate, but we don't? Regenerative biology is an exciting field of research that is continually growing! Want to learn more? In this class, every week, we will go over primary literature and journal articles concerning regeneration in salamanders and newts, planarian flatworms, hydra, zebrafish. We will also take a look into past and current stem cell research papers. I will provide the appropriate background information for the topic, and students will be expected to read the given literature beforehand every week. If you want to learn more about regeneration, this is the class for you!

W5240: Traditional Chinese Lion Dancing in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
Lion Dancing is a traditional Chinese dance performed during Chinese New Year and various other celebrations (weddings, festivals etc.). Come join us and see what it's like to be a lion dancer!

S5245: Salamander Regeneration in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
If you cut a salamander's tail off, it grows back! If you cut it's arm off, that grows back as well! Have you ever thought about how this process occurs? Salamanders have a remarkable ability to extensively regenerate various appendages and organs. For centuries, researchers have tried to unravel this phenomenon. Come learn about the major processes involved in salamander regeneration and past/recent research that has allowed researchers to gain further insight into this regenerative process!

S4043: Food Investigators in Splash! 2010 (Nov. 20 - 21, 2010)
Ever wonder if you can cook up a neat experiment right in your very own kitchen? We'll be doing some hands on projects such as DNA extraction and chromatography with food! We'll also be teaching the concepts behind each experiment. Come if you want to learn and do science with simple everyday materials!
