Impact Goals of the Center for STEM
of educators, researchers, and students
in the K-20 educational ecosystem
to significantly impact the STEM pipeline
for traditionally under-represented groups
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.
