Special camp for budding bio-scientists
Most kids go to summer camp for swimming, hiking and crafts. One group of Wisconsin students is in camp for nanotechnology, stem cells and bioethics.
The WiCell Institute on the UW-Madison campus, is holding its first ever science camp. Eighteen high school students took a quiz to get there and are attending along with their teachers.
WiCell's Director of Operations Sue Carlson says the campers are incoming seniors who have an interest in biology related careers.
