Pathways Summer Scholars is a free two-week summer science day program for 100 rising tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade Yale Pathways students. Each summer, Pathways Summer Scholars will have the opportunity to select from a variety of STEM workshops collaboratively designed and taught by Yale faculty and graduate students. The program for Summer 2020 includes new workshop topics, including but not limited to sustainability, coding, neuroscience, engineering, and more. Current Yale students serve as teaching assistants and mentors in the program. Rising Pathways seniors are also eligible to apply to the residential program, living in the Yale student dormitories and taking part in college preparatory programming in addition to attending STEM workshops during the day

“The best part of Pathways Summer Scholars was my workshops. I really enjoyed the way the professors presented the information in a hands-on way. It gave me a more real-world view of science.”  —Summer Scholars student
