Society for Science & the Public
August 23, 2010

I have volunteered since 1995, first helping in Display and Safety and now with the Scientific Review Committee. The organization has a tremendous staff that works more than a 'regular job' to assure that the experience these talented kids get is first class. This is a program that opens eyes and doors. It promotes the growth of the students as individuals and as teams and truly supports science, engineering and technology education.

Increase the staff at SSP to relieve some of the tremendous burden that is placed on the existing staff. Provide the staff with tremendous bonuses - they deserve it!
