I've actually participated in this program and it has really opened up doors. My research is doing good and I feel really great about doing it. The people in it are great and I forsee it being an international program not too far from now......

My daughter participated in this after her junior year. She will be a junior in college next year and has done three years of research in cell biology. This is an incredible opportunity for anyone's child who is interested in science and mathematics

Contrary to what the previous reviewer has said, it is not limited to the St. Louis metro area, as we have had people from Iowa City, Pittsburgh, and Chicago come this year. But I do agree with this person since it is a great opportunity for hands on research in science.
