Hi. I'm from Colombia. The effort that you people do, is very helpful for all of us in a world without frontiers. The bet for the science is something that our society don't really appreciate in all their extents.
Thank you, for all the good work. I hope you can keep it that way !

If possible, try to implement some kind of method to make the contents accessible to people that cannot read english.

I've read Science News since I was in High School. It was in our library but I decided to subscribe. When the first Mariner images came back from Mars I had them in my hands, via my S/N before it became big news in the genral media. I've been a member/subscriber off and on over the years as time and situations permitted. SSP is a gateway to the harder stuff - science of all disciplines. Checking in with S/N and SSP is a great way for me 50+ years from high school to keep my intellect alive and curious and informed. I'm sure it inspires young people now as it did when I was in HS.

The Society For Science & The Public is performing yeoman service to the American (and probably non-American) public in covering, in a timely fashion, with brilliant journalism by experts in each area, scientific research in every field, as published in Science News. Given the sad state of science literacy in the US, it is nothing short of miraculous that an organization could successfully undertake to bring science to the populace in easily comprehensible form. We have a subscription & try to urge all our friends to subscribe as well, since a knowledge of science is essential to navigate a 21st-century world. Personally, I believe this magazine should be required reading in high schools. I suspect we'll see a lot more STEM candidates if young people have the kind of access to science that the Society provides.

reorganize their layout, like every other person who has taken the helm. :) Actually, I can't think of any changes I'd want to make. It's a pretty efficient organization.

With all the ignorance creating more and more tension between people, promoting the science and educating people is the only way to help healing the world. Art and education are the only way toward peace and health.

In addition to publishing Science News, an excellent, weekly non-technical overview of recent developments in science, SSP provides numerous opportunities for young students to actually DO science. The programs they administer such as ISEF, STS offer the chance for students to display the results of real research investigations. Today's high school curriculum is often limited to the tedium of learning material for standardized tests. But many of the programs SSP offers give students a chance to taste what real science is all about and a chance to be recognized for it.

The Great!

This organization does for Science what the Olympics do for sport. Actually, even more-because sports in this country already receive lots of attention. It stimulates and provides a platform for academically oriented students to stretch their intellects and contribute to sceintific knowledge. This venue is available to any student with the willingness to learn and to work. If not for SSP my son may never have pushed himmself to learn far beyond what was required in school and thus been bored. The amount of time and effort that the staff at SSP provide is truly mind-boggling. I am grateful to them and to the opportunities provided by them, without which my son may never have met like-minded individuals who are now life-long friends. If America is to compete in our global climate, SSP is the only public service organization actively serving that goal.

The Great!

Both of my kids life trajectories have been positively impacted by this organization. They have been motivated to stretch their intellects and pursue independent projects on their own. They are now both in excellent colleges and are role models for peers.
