The BIO5 Institute Keep Engaging Youth in Science research internship program fosters new knowledge, new skills, and authentic self-confidence in Arizona high schoolers.
 
Launched in 2007 as the brainchild of Dr. Marti Lindsey, Community Engagement Director for the Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center at the UArizona College of Pharmacy, the Keep Engaging Youth in Science (KEYS) program has provided 526 gifted Arizona high school students with the research experience of a lifetime. Through this seven-week summer internship, students engage in basic bioscience and data science research and develop science literacy and presentation skills. 
 
Now celebrating its 15th year, the BIO5 Institute KEYS program continues to provide students with real-world applications of the concepts they read about in textbooks. Bright high school students are not only challenged by this internship, but they are stretched and molded into poised leaders of tomorrow. 
 
“When you do something difficult, and you do it very well, then authentic self-confidence and the knowledge you can do anything, is born,” said Lindsey, the self-proclaimed “grandma” of KEYS.
