For over a dozen high school students from Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy (TJCA) in Mooresboro, N.C., one of the first weeks of their summer vacation has given them new insight into the practical application of scientific principles they have learned in the classroom. Through a grant from the Stonecutter Foundation (Spindale, N.C.), 14 teens participated in the first annual Science Academy, a brand new program designed to offer them enrichment in the subject of science. “I think this academy caused the students to think about science beyond the classroom and opened their eyes to the many different careers in the science field,” said Nick Longerbeam, biology teacher at TJCA.
