Review for Society for Science & the Public, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved in Science Fairs for over 22 years and the International Fair since 1994. The parent body (SSP) that supports this fair does a tremendous job. They support the students, the teachers, and all who are trying to keep kids interested and inspired in the sciences, technology, and engineering.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing how students shine when they explain the project they have been involved with. The students gain so much by being exposed to students, like themselves, from all over the world.

About every six months
