From studying the intricacies of the human brain to learning about Italian culture, high school students from the greater Rochester area engage in hands-on classroom activities during their summer vacation as part of the Rochester Scholars program. Sessions started this week and continue through July 30 on the River Campus and at the Medical Center.
