The Rochester Young Scientists Club
The Rochester Young Scientists Club’s (RYSC) focus is to engage fifth and sixth grade students in science experiences that promote science as a profession. The RYSC sessions are held on Saturdays at the UR Medical Center. Medical students from the University of Rochester School Of Medicine mentor scholars actively participating in hands-on science activities.
The RYSC program culminates in spring with a longitudinal project where students present to the community their findings of a study from a scientific question they have researched.
