September 2015 Update:
The Future Scientists Program is funded through a partnership with the School District of Philadelphia's West Philadelphia "GEAR UP" program. The program provides academic services for seventh and eight grade students in "GEAR-UP" schools in West Philadelphia. To date, for the 2015-2016 academic year, implementation is contingent upon the appropriation of "GEAR-UP" funds that will cover transportation, personnel, and instructional materials. Funding is pending; consequently, program implementation is on hold.
December 2015 Update:
The Future Scientists Funding proposal was rejected.
Program implementation is hereby canceled.
