This unique summer program takes the threat of a “zombie apocalypse” seriously – if only long enough to elevate public awareness of the need to prepare for natural and human-made disasters.
The Zombie Scholars Academy is a unique academic program that takes the unprecedented interest young people have in the thrilling, and often humorous, fiction of a zombie apocalypse and turns that energy into an engaging vehicle for learning about some of society’s most pressing needs.
A one-week residential learning experience taking place on the Truman campus July 10-17, the Zombie Scholars Academy exposes students to great opportunities in biology, mathematics, creative writing, social science, group leadership and problem solving.
Open to rising ninth to 12th grade students, the Zombie Scholars Academy helps participants take great leaps forward in problem solving and leadership skills, learn a lot about fascinating new topics, and make lots of new friends doing it.
