Lab Intensives by Landry Academy

This came up on my radar and it sounds pretty cool if you happen to be able to be in, or can get to these locations.   Imagine a full year’s worth of Life Science with dissections that normally don’t come up until college. 

Also, there is a nearly 40 % discount if you register by Monday….

Space in these lab intensives is very limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Early registration discount is good through October 3rd, 2011.
