What is the YES! Team?

Are you interested in becoming an active member in the community?  Do you enjoy watching things blow up? Does exploring caves sound fun to you? If so, then the YES! Team is the right place for you. The Museum of Science and Industry’s YES! Team (Youth Enriched by Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) is a service-learning program that involves students in community activities and helps apply those experiences to their personal and academic development. Since 1992, this unique opportunity has benefited and enriched the students as well as countless others in their community, both locally and globally.
