Arboretum Young Scientists: Middle School Science Education

Arboretum Young Scientists is an outdoor life science program for rising 8th grade students from the Boston Public Schools, offered free of charge at the Arboretum.

This summer, July 5–29, the Arboretum will hold a pilot summer session for students from several Boston Public Schools: Mission Hill School, Lilla G. Frederick Pilot Middle School, Charlestown High Academy, and Mildred Avenue K8 School. Students will participate in hands-on outdoor activities, projects, and labs, and learn from scientists, gardeners, and others who study and care for nature. Applications are due by June 17.
