The Young Scientist Program & St. Louis Public Schools

The Young Scientist Program (YSP) is a unique science education outreach program that was conceived by and continues to be led by the graduate and medical students at Washington University. YSP is a proven model for student-run partnerships between academic institutions and public school systems. Founded in 1991, YSP works in partnership with the St. Louis area public schools teaching, recruiting, and mentoring students and teachers primarily from disadvantaged backgrounds in order to strengthen science literacy and promote interest in scientific careers.
