Seven Students Selected for UMSL STARS program
Seven Priory juniors have been selected to participate in the 2017 iteration of UMSL's Students and Teachers as Research Scientists (STARS) program. STARS is a six-week summer partnership that pairs local researchers in various STEM fields with high schoolers who assist them with their projects. Mentors for the program come from Arraybridge, Confluence Discovery Technologies, Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, Saint Louis University, Washington University in St. Louis and the host institution, University of Missouri-St. Louis.
“We’re happy to provide high school students access to STEM [science, technology, engineering and mathematics] opportunities on UMSL’s campus and in UMSL’s laboratories so that they might one day become top scientists themselves,” UMSL Chancellor Tom George said in a news release.
The STARS program is in its 30th year, and Priory has had rising seniors participate each summer for the last several years. Congratulations to these students on their tremendous opportunity!
