In addition to publishing Science News, an excellent, weekly non-technical overview of recent developments in science, SSP provides numerous opportunities for young students to actually DO science. The programs they administer such as ISEF, STS offer the chance for students to display the results of real research investigations. Today's high school curriculum is often limited to the tedium of learning material for standardized tests. But many of the programs SSP offers give students a chance to taste what real science is all about and a chance to be recognized for it.
