Review for SARSEF: S. AZ Research, Science & Engineering Foundation (SciEnTeK-12), Tucson, AZ, USA
SARSEF was instrumental in nurturing and sustaining my daughter's interest in biology, her eventual career choice. In the freshman year of high school, my daughter' s science fair project won first place because of which she was chosen to attend the science fair at the next level in SARSEF.
Although we came in with no expectations, the competition, professionalism, opportunities, and recognition offered by SARSEF blew her away and she will remain forever a SARSEF kid. SARSEF instilled in her a will to compete hard, allowed her to see the fruits of success, and get a taste of the next level in research. It helped form friends who were interested in research and the experience as a whole was absolutely central to her in choosing biology research as a career choice.
Following in her footsteps and motivated by all the goodness SARSEF has to offer, my younger daughter also participates eagerly in science fairs and it is a goal for her to make it to SARSEF every year. I could not think of a better thing for her to do now that she is in high school.
As a parent, I am grateful that SARSEF was there for our girls to help them see the next level in science and I cannot of think of another organization that could have played this role for them. The role of SARSEF in imparting STEM education in Southern Arizona is unrivaled and essential. I am grateful for this mission of SARSEF, because of which I joined to serve as a board member, a small way of giving back for the enormous difference it made in our two daughters' lives.
