CDC Disease Detective Camp
The CDC Disease Detective Camp is an academic public health day camp held at CDC's headquarters in Atlanta, GA.

The NASA Science Engineering Mathematics and Aerospace Academy, or SEMAA, is a national innovative project designed to increase participation and retention of historically underrepresented K-12 youth in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM. The goals of the NASA SEMAA project are to inspire a more diverse population of students to pursue careers in STEM; engage students, teachers and parents by incorporating emerging technologies into the project; and provide a challenging curriculum that meets state math, science and technology standards. SEMAA proactively addresses these goals by delivering a "hands-on, minds-on" curriculum, a state-of-the-art Aerospace Education Laboratory, and an innovative Family Café.

Vivien Thomas Summer Program

The Vivien Thomas Summer Research Program (VTRSP) of Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) is an eight-week program established in 2002 to recruit high school students to serve as apprentices in biomedical research laboratories. Students are mentored by an MSM research faculty and they conduct research by learning the content, process and methodology involved in inquiry science. This immersion into authentic biomedical research coupled with being mentored by research faculty dramatically increases the transfer of knowledge, skills and application of science.
