COVID-19 UPDATE: YAP 2020 has been cancelled due to the global pandemic. We are eager to return in the summer of 2021.
The Youth Adventure Program (YAP) is a series of one-week courses designed to encourage career exploration in fields of interest to gifted and talented students. YAP is held at Texas A&M University in College Station.
Classes run across a broad range — from architecture to veterinary medicine — and are taught by A&M professors and other professionals. Those leading classes will introduce concepts and principles, and then allow for discussion and doing as a strategy for engaging students in the investigative process. Class meet 9-11 a.m. and 1:30-3 p.m. Monday-Friday. YAP also includes additional social and recreational activities in the late afternoons and evenings to provide for student interaction in other settings.
