SQE Inspire Program

Mission Statement

The Simpson Querrey Institute for Epigenetics, with the generous support of Kimberly Querrey and the late Louis Simpson, have established the SQE Inspire Program. The goals of this program are to expose and inspire students ranging from elementary school to high school to a variety of STEM careers and the academics that complement those careers. This program includes events such as field trips, science teacher development/continuing education, internships, workshops and other outreach opportunities that support providing an educational experience to students, teachers and schools, especially those from underrepresented communities.
