Twenty top science students from rural Wisconsin high schools earned the opportunity to hone their laboratory skills and work alongside top researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Madison at the 2011 stem cell science camp. Hosted by the Morgridge Institute for Research, the four-day camp covered a variety of hands-on activities, including nourishing and dividing colonies of stem cells and learning how the cells can be directed to grow into heart, nerve and other specialized cells.

The camp was designed to provide an enrichment experience in an advanced scientific field while introducing promising students to the variety of academic opportunities on the UW–Madison campus. The participating students were incoming seniors at schools and educational centers including Edgar High School; Forward Service Corp.; Mukwonago High School; Ripon High School; and Winneconne High School. The students earned the honor of attending through their classroom performance and dedication during months of preparatory study.
