Young Scientist Program (YSP) at Washington University School of Medicine


The Young Scientist Program (YSP) works directly with underprivileged students and science teachers in St. Louis, MO. Its purpose is to: (1) captivate bright young minds for careers in science and medicine using hands-on training; (2) expose medical and doctoral trainees to disadvantaged young people in St. Louis; (3)enable St. Louis city public school science teachers by giving them direct experience in cutting-edge scientific research. YSP volunteers participate in Teaching Teams, which travel to classrooms to provide hands-on laboratory demonstrations and group problem-solving workshops. Volunteers have also served as mentors to >150 high school students that have completed YSP’s Summer Focus Program, where mentors work with students to complete a laboratory research project. High school teachers also work with YSP volunteers as part of the Teacher Researcher Partnership, in which curriculum components that emphasize an experiment-based approach to learning are developed.
