The Yerkes Summer Institute is a one week program that involves hands-on science activities organized about a central theme such as the Sun. Students are divided into small groups which cycle through 11-12 experiments. Older Explorers take a leadership role and help facilitate the institute both as teaching assistants and in guiding small reporting groups on developing bulletin boards and presentations. The institute culminates with presentations by the students for their parents, their peers and the Yerkes researchers based on a special topics that each reporting group worked on in depth.
