My first encounter with SciEnTeK-12 was in the 2nd grade, when I participated in the annual Science Fair. By my senior year in high school, the fair had helped me win scholarships, compete nationally and get my first job. I continued to participate in the fair as a volunteer after graduating from high school, wanting to pass on that experience to others. This work is so important, because many students have no other opportunity to experience science and engineering first-hand; to explore their own questions and come up with their own answers. The SciEnTek-12 Foundation performs a vital role in the community by providing a place for K-12 students to encounter real-life scientists and do their own research. Everyone involved with SciEnTek-12 is passionate about getting kids excited about science and engineering.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I've participated in the science fair during grade school; acted as a volunteer during college; and served on the Board of Directors for over a year.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
passionate about science and eager to share their experience and knowledge.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Inspire EVERY student in Southern Arizona, and teach EVERY teacher how to get their kids excited about science!
