STEM - Summer Research Experience:

 

At USciences, we realize the need to help high school students by expanding their access to high-quality STEM education, increasing their awareness of future careers and providing the necessary skills to succeed when they apply for colleges or pursue employment. As a result, we are providing research opportunities to local area high school students at USciences. We have offered this research camp the last three years to expose high school students to the excitement of working in a real university laboratory. This past summer (2019) we expanded the program by offering student housing so that we could immerse them for 6 weeks in this environment, and they loved it! Support is needed to help defer dormitory and research expenses for our 2020 campers and to help us expand the program to more underrepresented high school students.

 

Fundraising Initiatives Below:

 

Dormitory & Food

Funds will provide scholarships for students that need financial help to attend the summer camp.

 

Research Supplies

Funds will go towards research activities. We would like to give the students the ability to perform electron microscopy,  next generation sequencing, and advanced mass spectrometry experiment using local core facilities.  Funds are needed to help pay core facilities and to provide supplies and materials.
