Camp S.E.E.D. Flourishes

Local middle school and high school students have a better understanding of the business world after participating in Camp S.E.E.D. Marketing Day at Heritage University last month. Several dozen students from area schools spent two weeks with Heritage University Enactus members to learn marketing skills. With the help of mentors, they researched, developed, manufactured and marketed products which they sold to the campus community on June 28. The students also sold lunch and snack items.

This is the fifth year for Camp S.E.E.D. (Social, Economic and Environmental Development) at Heritage. Several of the mentors, including Grandview High School student Agustin Cortes, attended Camp S.E.E.D. as a student, and is glad to be giving back to the program.

Project NANO Showcase highlights projects by middle school students

Middle schools in the Tri-Cities area recently got the chance to present nanotechnology-related projects during Project NANO Showcase at The REACH. The Showcase is an event sponsored by the special outreach partnership between Heritage University in Toppenish, Heritage University at CBC as well as the Kennewick, Richland and Pasco School Districts. Research posters presented by several teams at the May 23 event in Richland, Wash. covered many aspects of nanotechnology.

The projects and their presenters included:

Charged with Pollen
Marie Curie STEM Elementary

Our Guinea Pigs Are Gone! A Forensic Mystery
Captain Gray STEM Elementary

Nanoethics: Just Because We Can, Should We?
Barbara McClintock STEM Elementary

Diatomaceous Earth
Chief Joseph Middle School

Dr. Bob Kao of Heritage University said every research team performed at an outstanding level. Participating teachers received a Foldscope microscope and kit for their classes as well as a free three-month subscription to Journal of Visualized Experiments, which was funded by a recent science education grant from the nationally and internationally recognized Society for Developmental Biology.
