11th Annual Science Expo

March 5, 2022

On March 5, 2022, YMWIC will host our Annual Science Expo. Beginning in September of 2021, YMWIC Scholars selected a science project and used the scientific method to execute their projects. They were required to meet specific deadlines for their project Research Plan, Lab Report, Project Board, and PowerPoint presentation. The culmination of their projects is the presentation and defending of their project at the Expo.

Volunteers from many YMWIC partner corporations serve as mentors to the Scholars throughout the project process, and judges for the Scholars’ presentation boards and oral presentations. Winning Scholars will be honored at our Annual Scholarship and Awards Banquet in May, 2022. To register, click here.

The YMWIC Foundation, Inc. would like your support with our Community Service and Outreach Program — the 11th Annual YMWIC Science & Career Expo.
