Roughly 200 middle school students participated in the first two Future Trek sessions last week. By the end of this semester, more than 1000 students will have experienced the possibilities available to them if they pursue a career in science.

It’s great to see students engaged and excited about science and science careers. One student commented, “I really liked learning about macro invertebrates.” When have you ever heard a kid say that? It just made me smile.

Future Trek allows students, Grades 6-8, to explore careers in science through interactive and hands-on demonstrations. Over the course of a morning, students rotate through four fun, informative and fast-paced, 20-minute classroom sessions with working scientists, engineers and STEM professionals.

Openings are still available for your school to participate in Future Trek - and it’s sister program, Greening Your Future - visit our website for details.
