Young Scholars Program

“[YSP] gave me a chance to try laboratory science and [get] my hands dirty in the best possible way. There’s nothing more valuable to a budding STEM researcher than being involved in a lab to practice the scientific method and learn to troubleshoot. You just can’t learn that from a book or in a basic classroom. I enjoyed being in a lab setting during the program and that encouraged me to continue to look for opportunities in college and beyond.”

2023 YSP Program Impact

Research Experience for Undergraduates

“This summer [2023] was such a great experience! I loved the lab that I was in, and I am so grateful to both Ben and Amy for all their support. I also loved the field trips and seminars and Arduino workshops! Learning Arduino was one of my favorite parts of this entire summer, but I also really appreciated how Lydia and Nick took the time to coordinate field trips for us to come together and get to know each other and experience new and exciting things and places that we otherwise may not have seen.”

STEM Field Trips

“My students LOVE this field trip and always talk about it all year long. For many of my students it is their first time on a university campus and that is a very inspiring experience for them.” -Teacher
“I learned to work with young students better, to share the wonders of STEM with young people, and to help young people affirm their love of STEM, or to help them realize it’s not for them.” -NEU Volunteer
