Year-Round Programs for Students & Families

WYSE collaborates with partner organizations to provide K-12 youth from diverse backgrounds with authentic STEM enrichment experiences within after-school or weekend STEM programs. These engagements use curricula developed by University faculty and staff in engineering, education, and other STEM fields. Undergraduate students selected to be WYSE LEADers provide instruction and mentoring to the students involved.
