Our faculty members are leading physicians and researchers who are passionate teachers, committed to mentoring and guiding students through every step of their training. Kids usually form a basic opinion about the sciences shortly after beginning school. If this is a negative opinion, it can be hard to engage those students in science as they grow older. Engaging young students with exciting material and experiences motivates them to learn and pursue the sciences throughout school. Building scientific understanding in the general public requires understanding of the motivations and interests that bring people to science.
