Who We Are:

The Young Scientist Program is a collaborative effort between scientists, graduate students and teachers to enhance K-12 science education through interactive experiments and activities in the classroom. 

Our Mission: 

1) Empower interested students to pursue higher education and careers in STEM fields regardless of their background

2) Promote diversity in science by challenging stereotypes about what it means to be a scientist. Studies have found that these stereotypes begin as early as second grade. This means that K-12 science outreach is important!

 

3) Develop undergraduate and graduate students' leadership, teaching, and communication skills through participation in our outreach events.
