BioScience Center of Excellence program members gather and connect at student camp retreat.

Shattuck-St. Mary’s BioScience Center of Excellence students kicked off the school year by joining together for a group retreat at Camp Omega in Waterville, Minn. on Friday, September 1-Sunday, September 3. 

Seniors arrived on Friday to participate in a series of leadership sessions before additional program members joined them at camp on Saturday. COE members joined together to tackle an obstacle course, boat on Horseshoe Lake, huddle by evening fires, and more during the three-day event. 

Students returned to class on Monday and will continue with their study of the cardiovascular system by dissecting fresh pig hearts later this week.
