University of Florida Careers
Through the FloridaLearns STEM Scholars Project’s UF Immersion into STEM Experience, talented and gifted high school juniors and seniors from small and rural districts across Florida spent five full days immersed in STEM learning on the University of Florida campus. From the PAEC area, twenty-nine STEM Scholars and seven teachers took advantage of this unique opportunity.
This customized experience, tailored to the unique needs of our students, was made possible through a partnership with the University of Florida’s Center for Precollegiate Education and Training (CPET). STEM Scholars representing Holmes and Washington Counties were Holmes County High School senior Jerrett Kandzer, Bethlehem School senior, Patricia Lewis, Chipley High School senior, Nick Butler, and Vernon High School junior, Genevieve Kunkel.
Throughout the week students interacted with university faculty and graduate students as opportunities were provided for them to learn about a variety of STEM career options and the post-secondary preparation required. They also gained familiarity with techniques and procedures used in scientific research by conducting experiments involving crystallization, DNA extraction, PCR, gel electrophoresis, and construction of morphological and molecular phylogenies of a group of plants.
These experiments took place in the Health Science Center and were led by UF College of Medicine students and university faculty members. Students also took advantage of some of the outside classrooms on campus as they learned about soils, explored a Florida wetland ecosystem where they waded through wetlands to collect various types of data, spelunked in a dry cave associated with the Floridan Aquifer, and visited Blue Springs, where water from the Floridan Aquifer emerges.
