Shadow A Scientist

This summer program pairs middle school students with a scientist at the University of Texas for a tour of the scientist’s lab and experiments in progress. The goal of the program is to provide the opportunity for young students to cultivate their interest in science and allow them to experience first-hand what a scientist does on a daily basis.
