They work in chemistry lab, tour 3-D lab and UCLEAR lab
A group of juniors from Kittson Central High School in Hallock, Minn., who are enrolled in the College in the High School program at the University of Minnesota Crookston (UMC), visited the college campus last week.
The students worked with UMC Assistant Professor Tim Dudley in the chemistry lab and toured the Immersive Visualization 3-D lab as well as the Undergraduate Collaborative Learning and Experiential Applied Research (UCLEAR) lab, which features cutting edge "touch table" technology. The tour was coordinated by Dana Trickey of UMC's College in the High School program and Kittson Central teacher Kim Jones.
Through its CIHS program, the University of Minnesota Crookston works with approximately 40 school districts located mostly in northwest Minnesota.
The program offers college-level courses to nearly 1,200 high school students who earn more than 7,400 college credits each year in their own school districts.
