My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Society for Science & the Public, Washington, DC, USA
Society for Science and the Public (SSP) is an organization that has brought out the best of my students, as well as of me, in terms of education in scientific research. Through its Intel ISEF programs, my students have been motivated to explore the world of science, and dared to be scientists at their young ages (I teach high school's science at P.R.). On the other hand, SSP offered me the opportunity to participate in the Research Teachers Conference program, a professional development program in which I learned from the experiences of fellow teachers from various US states. This made me understand that the educational problems that happened with my students are the same throughout the Nation. In addition, I learned new techniques to educate my students about investigative processes. I thank SSP for what they do for the teachers and society. This entity is needed for scientific research to continue to flourish among the younger generations, and thus develop the scientists of the future.
