FreshStart is a full-day of interactive workshops, held each Spring and Fall, targeting students in grades 3 through 12.  The workshops cover a variety of disciplines in the science and technology fields, which surpass what a young mind may assume is STEM.

The program is designed to motivate students to set academic goals in math, science and computer literacy while also providing a unique opportunity to network with professional role models.  Serving as one of our signature programs, FreshStart has seen tremendous growth over the years.
