Coushatta Youth Participates in Destination Science Camp 

Destination Science Campers Brennan Dromm, Mason Jones and Aaron Blanchard donned white coats and did cheek swabs in a biology lab Monday as Northwestern State University’s School of STEM kicked off the week-long science camp Monday.  Mason Jones is the grandson of Tom and Debbie Jones and the great-grandson of Lem and Margaret Jones of Coushatta.  He spends his summers with his grandparents in Coushatta.

Campers learned to look for bacteria under a microscope, plate the bacteria and study epidemiology.  Later in the week they were scheduled to learn about parasites and pathogens.

Throughout this week, students ages 10-14 will explore chemistry, zoology, engineering technology, physics, anatomy, physiology, veterinary science, ecology and natural science both in labs and outdoors.
