Welcome to the Translating Research to Youth through Information Technology (TRY-IT!) website!
TRY-IT! is a Science Education Partnership Award, funded by the National Center for Research at the National Institutes for Health (NIH). This grant was awarded to the Department of Behavioral Science at the University of Kentucky, in collaboration with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System and the Explorium of Lexington. The goal of the project is to encourage middle school students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds in the field, particularly those from low-income and minority backgrounds, to consider careers in biomedical and health science.
TRY-IT! has recruited three cohorts of students from four schools in Fayette County since 2007.
