Youth Exploring Science (YES) is structured to further the mission of the Saint Louis Science Center, “to ignite and sustain interest in and understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) learning throughout the Community. YES teens participate in college and career readiness training, preparing for higher education and beyond.  This training includes the completion of college applications, resume building and ACT preparation.  As part of a YES teen’s training, we present fairs and guest speakers from local and national colleges and universities, exposing YES teens to various Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) degrees and fields of study.

Opossum in our trash can!

Agriscience

So, we had a visitor yesterday. Kafele was putting stuff in the trash can outside the Taylor building and discovered a young opossum in it!  I fished her out, and together Teresa and I took her to a park to release her. Opossums aren't very dangerous, and they are nomadic, so if you see one near your house, just leave it alone and it will move on.  If you find an injured one, or an orphan baby, you can call the Wildlife Rescue Center.

Working at the science center Is a great experience . Working with the little kids is a fun thing to do. You can learn a lot from kids. But at the same time they learn from you.

This summer was really fun I learned a lot of new things . I meet a lot of good kids and new teens . We went on fields rips out in the woods. I'm really happy I got this opportunity to work with kids and do these science projects. I hope next summer is as fun as this summer.
