    The primary goal of YES is to encourage talented students to pursue science and engineering majors in high school and college; first, by expanding career awareness, including information on “hot” career areas in increased presence of working scientists and engineers in local high schools, secondly, by allowing students to interact continuingly with role models at SwRI. The summer program and the academic year mentorship provide the students with a wide variety of role models, including a large percentage of women and ethnic minorities. The program is divided into two parts: an intensive 3-week group training session held at SwRI in the summer where students are paired with SwRI staff members on a one-to-one basis, and an individual mentorship project completed during the academic year in which students earn credit at their high school. for application information contact Ms. Cindy Luna via Teams or email cluna@iwhs.org. Applications due: April 7, 2024.
