My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Society for Science & the Public, Washington, DC, USA
I became involved with science fairs when I helped some students with their science projects more than 10 years ago. This led to my judging local fairs and eventually judging the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) for the Society for Science and the Public (SSP). They regard good judging as essential. SSP gives it the resources and attention needed.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
talking with the finalist and working with the staff and other volunteers.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
dedicated, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
give more help to disadvantaged students.
Ways to make it better...
there was more time to talk to the finalists.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
making sure students who don`t have much to work with are are encouraged and their accomplishments recognized. The organization needs to encourage mentors and create other opportunities for as many students as possible.
One thing I'd also say is that...
they do a great job.
