    Spend a week exploring the ecology of southeastern Indiana with Biology professor’s Darrin Rubino (Botanist) and Brian Gall (Zoologist). Carved by the ice ages, with rolling hills, forested bluffs, dramatic ravines and the Ohio River Valley, southeastern Indiana is one of the most biologically diverse and geologically interesting areas of the state. You will assess the environmental quality of our local creeks and streams, travel to an old growth forest to investigate climate using tree ring analysis, collect 400 million year old fossils, learn to identify local animals and plants (and their behavior) and have a great experience doing so in our state-of-the-art laboratories. Using the tools of modern science to study the natural world, the week will culminate in a science scholars’ symposium where you'll have the opportunity to present your findings.

    Hanover College’s Summer Academy will be held Sunday, June 9 – Friday, June 14, 2019. Rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors in high school are invited to apply. Scholars who complete one of the six courses will be guaranteed a minimum $15,000 academic merit scholarship to attend Hanover College.
