Boys at Tulane in STEM (BATS)

Boys conduct chemistry experiment in a lab.

Tulane University’s BATS Program provides fifth through seventh grade boys with the opportunity to meet and work with role models in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Workshops developed and offered by Tulane faculty and Tulane student teams encourage boys to inquire, investigate, and discover in a science and engineering environment. Our goal is to open the doors wide and welcome young students to careers in STEM fields by encouraging creative thinking, promoting self-esteem, and increasing awareness of the opportunities that await them.
