Society for Science & the Public
August 27, 2010
Society for Science and the Public is an outstanding organization which gives kids a chance to compete in scientific endeavors and learn skills that will affect not only their future, but the future of the world. The kids who compete at ISEF are doing cutting edge science and their discoveries are making a difference in the world. The middle school kids who compete for the chance to participate in a competition in Washington DC learn skills that will not only help them schieve in high school, but will most likely set them on the path towards a career in science, math, engineering or technology.
As a parent of two boys who are now in high school that had the chance to compete in Washington DC, I can attest to the life changing effect these competitions have had. My boys went from very shy, kids who would most likely sit quietly and listen in class, to boys who are actively striving to do their best and get the most out of every class, they dare give answers and ask questions and push the teachers to give their best every day.
