Become a Mentor

Every year we get numerous middle and high school students joining TheLab to complete science fair research projects.  To ensure the safety of our students and give them the best experience possible we always pair our students with experienced research scientists.

Check out our Youth Scientist Page to see some of the accomplishments of our students.
