Our mission is to connect students and classrooms with UNC scientists.

These scientists range from college students to professors running research labs. They are a diverse group of individuals who have taken different paths to become scientists and share a love of science. Our hope is that through these personal interactions we can make science accessible, engaging, and also have a meaningful impact on the importance of science.
