May the odds be ever in your favor while we explore the science behind the jabberjay, botanical medicine and edible plants, archery and climate change. Don’t worry, you won’t have to fight your fellow students to get a chance to learn and have fun. We’ll try our own hand at experimenting with genetic engineering and study the science of climate change and how Panem came to be. Students will make their own slingshots and practice shooting targets (and learn a little physics along the way). A trip to the fabulous greenhouse here at CU will introduce us to some of the magic behind the plants we live with everyday.
