SciEnTeK-12 Foundation (known as SARSEF)
August 17, 2010

I had a great time reviewing projects and then meeting with other judges to pick our top choices. Was a great experience and have to say it has been so much fun I make a point to do it each year. Make sure you add time for student interviews after lunch...give the kids practice for when they reach the high school projects and its interesting to see how they went about doing their projects. I never fail to learn something new.

The Great!

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

Seeing kids go on to more advanced science due in part to my encouragement and support.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have to say they are always very organized and well prepared...no suggestions that I can think of except that I hope more people will come out to help even more kids.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting a chance to see how excited the kids are about science and showing folks what they learned.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very helpful and interested in kids and promoting their interest in science and research.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help inspire even more kids to open their minds and think of science and where a love of it can take them in the future.

Ways to make it better...

more people were willing to give of their time and maybe a few dollars to help kids develop their love of science in all areas.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

they can always use more funding and volunteers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

these folks are very dedicated and it takes that kind of person to give of their time and talent to help all our kids realize their potential.
