TGR Learning Lab Student Spotlight: My path toward a career in STEM
My earliest memories of the TGR Learning Lab began when I was walking down Gilbert Street from Gauer Elementary School to take part in the week-long, 5th grade field trip. A few years later, I was back for more, enrolling in multiple classes in the after-school program.

However, with the support of the TGR Learning Lab, as both a student and a staff member, I was able to find my footing. The TGR Learning Lab equipped me with valuable tools as I transitioned from high school to college.
