Welcome to BOOST!


BOOST (Building Opportunities and Overtures in Science and Technology) is a multidimensional program 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.  BOOST is funded through a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA).
