DNS offering programs for academically talented students Spaces are available for four Delaware Nature Society summer science programs for academical- ly talented students. From June 23-27, students en- tering seventh grade may study 'Estuarine Ecology' using Lewes as a base. Activities will include researching the inter-tidal zone, beach and Delaware Bay, canoe- ing through the saltmarsh, con- ducting squid dissections, cruising the bay aboard a research vessel and swimming at the beach. The course will be taught by Amy Quillen, a Smyrna High School biology teacher and Penney Hall, a Selbyville Middle School sci- ence teacher. Students entering sixth grade can learn about 'Freshwater Aquatic Biology' from July 7-11 at Ashland Nature Center, Hockessin. Students will learn about the interrelationships of plants and animals to physical and chemical surroundings; they will learn about advanced technology in water preparation, sewage treat- ment and pollution control; they will participate in a watershed study by canoe. The course is taught by Frank Tait and Tom Guyer, science teachers at Gun- ning Bedford Middle School.

Then, during the week of Aug. 4-8, students enter- ing fifth grade are invited to the Ashland Nature Center to focus on 'Native Americans.' Topics will include the interaction be- tween Native Americans and the land, wilderness survival and how these people were totally depen- dent on raw natural resources for food, clothing and shelter. The course is taught by Karen Barker, an award-winning Tatnall School science teacher and Charlotte Hol- ck, a Native American specialist.
