The purpose of the Science Outreach Day is to provide a day of engaging science to high need New York City high schools serving a predominantly underrepresented minority and disadvantaged student population. As part of this effort we collaborate with interested high schools on developing a tailored science outreach program at The Rockefeller University to fit the science enrichment needs of these students.
Our objective is to serve as an information pipeline to inform students of research opportunities at Rockefeller such as the Summer Neuroscience Program and the Summer Science Research Program and to emphasize the importance of science and science literacy regardless of one's career trajectory.
