Youth Infusion Board – Kentucky Science Center

The Kentucky Science Center in Louisville, Kentucky (formally the Louisville Science Center) is committed to expanding its capacity as a leader in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. The Kentucky Science Center’s Youth Infusion Board is a leadership development program for high school students ages 16-18.

The program offers students an opportunity to develop their decision making skills, improve their ability to work on committees, and gain experience in community based science literacy programs.

During the 2011-2012 school year, members of the Youth Infusion Board served as community ambassadors to advance the Kentucky Science Center’s science literacy campaign. The board acted as the primary link to the community and was essential to the science center’s mission to encourage people of all ages to incorporate science into their everyday lives. Each year, the Youth Infusion Board also plans and organizes the Youth Science Summit. This year’s summit in Louisville will include dialogues on hot science topics, interaction with leading STEM professionals in speed mentoring sessions, hands-on industry labs, and advocacy for STEM advancement.
