Review for Society for Science & the Public, Washington, DC, USA
Society for Science & the Public promotes science education through many programs that benefit students, teachers and the public in general. With the assistance of outstanding sponsors, science research is recognized with international science fair activities and talent search opportunities with first-class organization. As a high school student from a rural county in North Florida, I was an international science fair winner forty years ago. The experience was life-changing and my passion for science ignited. I wanted other students in my little rural county high school to have the same opportunity I had, so I returned there to teach science courses with a research component. I have been bringing students to the ISEF for decades and enjoy watching the continued success of the participants after they return home motivated to pursue higher education and careers with confidence.
