Science Achievers deepen their work by pursuing more rigorous science topics, meeting with working science professionals, preparing for college and careers and more.
About the Science Achievers
Through the Science Achievers youth development program, teens can discover new interests in science and technology, develop leadership skills, prepare for college and careers, learn from working science professionals, mentor new classes of Science Minors, and have the opportunity to participate in paid internships. Teens become more comfortable with science and understand its impact on their lives by engaging Museum guests in activities.
To become a Science Achiever, teens must complete the Science Minors program and volunteer for 50 hours. Science Achievers are asked to volunteer 12 hours a month to remain in the program.
