The Clarkson Young Scholars Program is a unique and challenging summer program attracting bright, creative, and motivated students. Working individually and in small groups, they conduct research, provide recommendations, and make a final presentation to community leaders. It is a stimulating program in a real world setting that fosters intellectual development, communication skills and cooperative problem solving. Each year, we develop projects that are real world issues to challenge the students. The below projects reflect the programs from the past few years.
