Week 4: July 16–July 20

Poison Detectives

Reveal the truth behind myths and legends as we investigate the power of toxins and their biological role in nature and health. We will dive into the fascinating and often misunderstood history of poisons and venoms, how they can be essential for animal survival and the role they may play in the future of medicine. You’ll also explore how the human body works and responds to poison, while chatting with our resident herpetologists and horticulturists to discover the various advantageous adaptations of animals and plants.

Registration for this camp closes at 12:00 p.m. on July 11, 2018.
