Do you enjoy science class?

Middle schoolers (grades 6-8 / ages 12 -14) can attend YNS summer camps at campuses throughout Nebraska. These multi-day (commuter or overnight) sessions focus on a science topic and are led by a faculty member and their upper-level students. Camp leaders shape the sessions to help you meet friends and do active learning in science that takes you beyond your usual science classes.

High schoolers (grades 9-12) can attend YNS summer camps -OR- apply to be a High School Researcher*. YNS High School Camps take place in Nebraska college laboratories with small groups and experiments for hands-on aspects of science with in-depth experiences.

*Each summer a few high school students are chosen for paid positions as High School Researchers: working with science teams at Nebraska campuses. These experiences are ideal for exposure to real-life STEM job experiences, and look great on your college applications.
