Adventure Science Center Youth CR3W

More than just another extracurricular, Youth CR3W is a program that prepares Nashville teens for college and the working world. Students are encouraged to apply as high school freshmen, committing to the program for four years. Pronounced "crew", the "3" in CR3W represents three E's: engage, explore, and explain.
 
Engage
The primary responsibilities of Youth CR3W include interpreting exhibits for guests, delivering discovery cart activities, and facilitating public programs and events. Youth CR3W members are also presented the opportunity to participate in special STEM based projects throughout the year, including a mentorship alongside our Scientist on Site program!
 
Explore
Youth CR3W offers an opportunity to hone communication skills in a professional environment through gaining confidence with public speaking and leadership roles, discovering real-world business skills and etiquette, and developing a solid work ethic. The program allows students to explore their own evolving career interests in a way that has a positive community impact.
 
Explain
Being able to explain science to a wide range of ages is one of the primary skill sets developed throughout the Youth CR3W program. The sheer enthusiasm of Youth CR3W participants helps guests forge better connections with Science Center exhibits and programs.
