The Rochester Young Scientist Club (RYSC), supported by medical students from the University of Rochester School of Medicine mentor a group of 5th and 6th grade scholars from Nathaniel Rochester Community School #3 as they learn about how science is practiced in a professional setting.  

Activities that the 5th and 6th graders participate in include exercises to demonstrate principles of the scientific method as well as tours of working laboratories at the Medical Center.
The RYSC program will culminate with a longitudinal project in which the 5th and 6th grade students apply what they’ve learned by developing a scientific experiment and presenting their findings at the Medical Center with the help of their mentors.

The RYSC’s goal is not only to teach the 5th and 6th graders about science, but also to encourage life-long curiosity and enthusiasm by giving them the opportunity to do science at a world-class academic institution.
