NYLF Pathways to STEM Reviews: Student Testimonials

Below are more in-depth interviews with students who have recently attended the program. Some of the students are alumni of multiple Envision programs.

What’s made you come back to so many Envision programs over the years, and what would you tell other students who are interested in attending an Envision program?

I keep coming back because the programs are really interesting. It feels good to be with other like-minded people who also love learning. The first time I came to a program I was in third grade, and I have come every summer since. Now I am a freshman in high school.

I would just say give it a try just once, and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.

How as the program encouraged you to take action in your school or community?

Going to envision has made me want to continue my dream of becoming an engineer. They gave me a lot of information about the different kinds of technology I can work on.
