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.
