SSP Fellows program has changed not only the lives of my students, but has given a community something to be proud of. The Fellows program provides training, financial resources, and mentoring to committed teachers willing to start independent scientific research programs in their under served schools. This program has enabled our school (having the highest poverty rate in our state, 91%) to go from having zero students competing in science competitions to Regional Science Fair Small School of the Year. We had students compete in State and International competitions because of the support of SSP. The direct and immediate impact of the training and funds shows the outstanding success of this program by SSP.
