Review for Summer Science Program, Cary, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I attended this program in 1960. It was the most exciting, stimulating, mind expanding experience of my young life. It helped me understand what I could do, and could not do, and helped me choose which college to go to and prepared me for the experience.

Later in life, I have spent considerable time supporting the program and working with other alums to sustain it and expand it.

Review for Summer Science Program, Cary, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went to this program over fifty years ago and it was a defining experience for me then and all through college. My son was the first second generation participant, and I hope my grandson will be a third generation participant. It is a fabulous experience. I have participated in running the program with the most dedicated group of volunteers I have ever had the honor to work with.
