CAUTION!!!  During this camp, your child will be working with live bacteria.  While the bacteria will not be dangerous, it could cause infections in immunocompromised individuals.  We will use all precautions possible (lab coats, safety glass, and gloves), but we MUST know if your child is immunocompromised or at an increased risk of infection so that we may take extra steps to ensure their safety.  Your child will also be working with chemicals in the chemistry laboratories.  If your child has any allergic reactions to medicines or other chemical compounds, please let us know so we avoid using those in our experiments.
