The Health Sciences and Technology Academy (HSTA) is a partnership between teachers, faculty at West Virginia University, high school students, and local communities that aims to increase the college enrollment rate of underrepresented students and the number of health care providers in the medically underserved rural communities of West Virginia. HSTA provides academic enrichment (science, math, and technology) and leadership development for these high school students through on-campus summer institutes and extracurricular after school science clubs. This paper describes the goals and workings of the program, and features in-depth perspectives of three exemplary community-based student projects: (1) Bacterial Counts in Undercooked Hamburger; (2) Hike for a Healthy Heart; and (3) Is There Too Much NOx in the Air We Breathe? (Contains 16 references.) (WRM)
