The 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 provides opportunities for its participants to be exposed to activities and experiences that are representative of the work done by individuals in astronomical and engineering field.
The Youth for Astronomy program provides a supportive environment that encourages diversity in the astronomical and engineering community by increasing awareness to young men and women, minorities, as well as those with special needs.
Over the years this program has grown due to the commitment of staff, parents, teachers, students as well as funding partners.
