About Us

Youth for Astronomy and Engineering (YAE) is a program at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) for youth interested in astronomy and engineering as a career. The YAE program provides opportunities for its participants to be exposed to activities and experiences that are representative of the work done by individuals in the astronomical and engineering fields.

The Youth for Astronomy and Engineering program provides a supportive environment that encourages diversity in the astronomical and engineering community by increasing awareness to young men and women, minorities, and those with special needs.

Over the years, this program has grown due to the commitment of staff, parents, teachers, and students, as well as funding partners.
