How Do I Get Involved in YSA Programs?
Our programs are designed to cater for all levels of interest and expertise, from our beginner and intermediate "Sidewalk Science" program, to our advanced "Afterschool Science Ambassadors" program, and to our specialized "Code Niñas" computer science and "Homeschool Science"programs. Virtual experiences, hands-on lab activities, field expeditions, and exploration through real world research experiments.....there is something for everyone. We even have science programs in Spanish with our new "Latinx Science Nights" program!
No experience necessary, just a willingness to try something new and have fun!
Program themes that inspire discovery and benefit the community
We encourage all forms and styles of discovery and creativity whether it be a lab experiment testing a new idea, art project expressing a scientific opinion or a public service announcement showing how science can be used to solve issues. The young mind is curious and we particularly encourage scientific exploration into climate change, urban sustainability and public health.

How do I select a program that is right for me?
Science is a way of life and without knowing it, our youth are already using science throughout their day. All our programs build on themselves and emphasize how the fundamentals of science can be applied as a problem solving tool. We encourage exploration, discovery and collaboration, and mentor youth at their level of knowledge and interest in a particular subject area, building confidence and self-esteem. Choosing the right program level can be challenging, but we suggest the following rules when making your decision. As always we are here help so please reach out to Dr Rob at email@example.com or (910) 386-1867 with any questions. We look forward to seeing you all soon at YSA 'doing science'.
