YSP Projects

CURENT’s Young Scholars Program invites local high school students who excel in STEM classes to participate in research alongside CURENT graduate students and professors. The YSP students complete their research either during a 4 week summer program or after school during the scademic year. Here are some examples of research projects CURENT YSP students have completed:
