Information for Students

Introduction

  • L.E.A.P. is a hands-on, think-outside-the-box program where learning is exciting and interactive.
  • Each day of the program starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 4:00 p.m. you will engage in lectures given by undergraduate students and professors to help you understand the concepts needed to participate in the activities.
