What is YSPA?
YSPA is a 4-week residential research and enrichment program for 32 rising high school juniors and seniors who are interested in astronomy, physics, math, computer programming, and other science and tech fields. Students take classes in physics, math, and astronomy, complete a scientific research project using telescopes at Yale, learn the basics of computer programming and data science, and present their results at the end of the program. YSPA has a small student-to-faculty ratio (32:6), so students get to know each other and the faculty very well. It’s a summer experience like no other.
