I really enjoyed the purpose of this program, which was to expose teens to scientific research and potentially push them towards pursuing a scientific career. I know it worked for me.

The activities and the people that I got to meet and network with because I got to learn about different areas of science and work in field where everyone shares a common interest of science.

What I liked most was how much I got to experience and learn. From touring core facilities to reviewing the central dogma. It was super great.

I liked the hands-on work very much and it was really helpful when the mentors explained the topics very clearly. Also, I liked that although this program was about biology, they talked so much about college which is extremely helpful. It was the best science program. It inspired me to think about a career in science.
