Society for Science & the Public
August 30, 2010
This organization does for Science what the Olympics do for sport. Actually, even more-because sports in this country already receive lots of attention. It stimulates and provides a platform for academically oriented students to stretch their intellects and contribute to sceintific knowledge. This venue is available to any student with the willingness to learn and to work. If not for SSP my son may never have pushed himmself to learn far beyond what was required in school and thus been bored. The amount of time and effort that the staff at SSP provide is truly mind-boggling. I am grateful to them and to the opportunities provided by them, without which my son may never have met like-minded individuals who are now life-long friends. If America is to compete in our global climate, SSP is the only public service organization actively serving that goal.
