The Young Scientist Program is designed to attract high school students from disadvantaged backgrounds into scientific careers through activities emphasizing hands-on research and individualized contact between young people and active scientists. In addition, it targets St. Louis City Public High School teachers with resources that facilitate inquiry-based learning in the classroom. Each year the program reaches hundreds of high school students and teachers in the St. Louis City Public Schools. The program components work in concert with one another to foster high school students’ and teachers’ interest in science.
The components are:
- Teaching Teams – Volunteers visit St. Louis City High Schools and present units in Anatomy, Chemistry, Ecology, Evolution, Forensics, Genetics, Genomics, Microbiology, Neuroscience, and Physics.
- Summer Focus – 8 week summer internship for high school juniors. Volunteers serve as program organizers, mentors, and tutors.
- Teacher and Researcher Partnership– 8 week summer internship for high school science teachers. Volunteers serve as program organizers and mentors.
- Lab Equipment/Supply Recycling Program – This program recycles used equipment and computers into the local city schools.
- Other programming includes: Family Med Program, Nano Medical School, Women in Science Day, and Family Science Experience.
