The Saunders Science Scholars Program students recently completed a successful summer college tour across North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad region.

Students visited Winston-Salem State University, Wake Forest University and Wake Forest University School of Medicine, UNC Greensboro, and North Carolina A&T State University. In addition to exploring these institutions, students also engaged with the surrounding communities, including visiting the International Civil Rights Center & Museum and Skyzone Greensboro.

The trip was coordinated by Morehead Planetarium & Science Center. Morehead collaborates with Gates County Schools and Gates County Community Partnership to provide resources and activities that engage high school students and inspire future leadership in STEM fields.
