"ASPIRE was the most eye-opening and mind-opening aspect of my high school experience. My time in the ASPIRE classroom provided support, guidance, and inspiration for my research endeavors. My time in the lab familiarized me with problem-solving, challenges, and the creativity skills implicit in scientific inquiry. Participating in science fairs and competitions connected me with peers and mentors from scientific communities all over the world. I am very lucky to have been a part of this program."

"Through the privilege of working at the lab, I was able to experience science at a whole new level. The research was interesting, thought-provoking, and a great experience before I pursued college research."
