BELL exists to transform the academic achievements, self-confidence, and life trajectories of children living in under-resourced, urban communities. Because we believe in the tremendous potential of all children to excel, we recognize them as scholars.

Project START (Students, Teachers, and Researchers Teach) Science! is an initiative in which students from Yeshiva University, accompanied by professors from YU, design and implement scientific curricular modules in a local public school. The pilot program, started in Spring 2011 and consisted of 8 courses in the disciplines of Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Engineering and is currently taught in science classes. This is an excellent opportunity to put into practice the theory learned in class while simultaneously helping the Washington Heights community. START is run by the YU ACS Chemistry Club.
