Society for Science & the Public
August 30, 2010
Society for Science, being the parent organization of the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair brings together the best and brightest young minds from around the world every year. They provide opportunities for students to connect with professionals in the field, visits to scientific laboratories such as CERN, and thousands of dollars in scholarship opportunities.
I have had the pleasure of working with SSP as a teacher of a finalist for the International Fair, as an affiliated fair director and I was recently chosen as a 2010 SSP Fellow. I have found all of my experiences with them to be very positive. The fellowship is providing my underserved students an opportunity to pursue science research projects. Not only does SSP provide the funding, but they also provide the educational framework necessary to develop a successful research program and support throughout the process.
I highly recommend SSP and would rate them #1 among scientific non-profit organizations.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
participation with science fairs and the 2010 Fellows Institute. My students have won thousands of dollars at the International Fair, which provided for an education they may not have otherwise been able to afford!
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
working with so many people committed to helping students succeed!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
incredibly accomodating and professional!
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
continue its incredible work reaching out to students!
