Welcome to BOOST!


BOOST (Building Opportunities and Overtures in Science and Technology) is a multidimensional program is designed to excite young people – particularly underrepresented minorities, girls, and kids from economically challenged backgrounds – about science and inspire them to pursue careers in medicine and related fields.

Imagine walking into an office of engineers, a hospital, or research laboratory and seeing faces that represent the wonderful diversity of our society. Through BOOST, we can make this dream a reality!

BOOST is funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Science Education Partnership Award.
