We love science. That's why eScience Labs CEO, Scott Higgins participated as a panelist in a science fair hosted by RiseUp Community School, a free, public charter high school in Denver, Colorado.



"These kids are amazing," Higgins said. "Their presentations focused on balancing rain forest ecosystems, I was impressed. RiseUp has a great program going here."



RiseUp engages young people who have previously dropped out of school or are at risk of dropping out. Their vision: That all young people, regardless of their circumstances, have access to an education that will prepare them to counter social inequities and realize their full potential. 



eScience Labs is now partnering with RiseUp to offer paid internships and mentoring to students who are looking to gain experiences in a business work environment. Students will be pared with an eScience mentor in their field of interest to allow students the opportunity to explore potential career paths.
