STEMstars . . .We have a new name, but the same great science!
STEMstars is designed to enhance graduate education for students pursuing diverse areas of biological research.
The program offers focused molecular biology training, professional enrichment opportunities, intensive mentoring, and a structured community outreach component to area high schools. The STEMstars Program supports fourteen fellows each year who participate in: mentor-directed research and course work, molecular biology courses, professional development, and community outreach, where fellows serve as content experts to seven STEMstars funded area high school teachers.
