Students selected to go to the event will compete with other students from across the state of South Carolina. The cost of this field trip is $24.00 which includes the exam registration fee and lunch at a Clemson dining hall. After lunch, students will participate in various other activities provided by the Clemson Biology Department. Students will return to school in time for regular dismissal. All applicants will be required to attend eight study sessions that will take place during their lunch, prior to the event. Study session dates are April 1st-12th and April 22nd-25th. Only thirty 7th and 8th grade students will be selected to attend.
