CaYPT gave me the opportunity to experience both the experimental and theoretical aspects of scientific research. One of the most beneficial parts of the competition, in my opinion, is its ‘debating’ format. Putting myself into roles of the reporter and the opposer pushed me to think of problems from a variety of different view points.” – Vivian He
