Review for Society for Science & the Public, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This wonderful organization provided me with a grant as an SSP Fellow to set up a course dedicated to teaching Science research. The amazing training at the SSP Institute and continuous contact and support to ensure goals are met have helped me stay focused and organized, as well as energized! SSP is benefitting students and touching their lives by opening doors and opportunities for success and discovery! I am a HUGE fan! SSP gets a STANDING OVATION!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

SSP Fellows Grant has enabled me to teach a research course! The training I received and the respect with which teachers were treated at the training was energizing and inspirational. My studens' enthusiasm and commitment is due to SSP's provisions!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way for them to afford to give EVERY SCIENCE teacher the opportunity to experience a Fellows Institute! I would also love to experience being a Fellow every year instead of just one- but I believe we need to share and spread the great work of SSP

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The thorough and instense training and support for teaching Science Research! Learning to benefit students in Science is what SSP is all about!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Incredibly professional, creative, giving, full of passion for their work, and just top notch in their fields! These are truly special people whose focus is on Science, Research and getting it to the students and teachers!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do even more wonders than it already does! The task of running the International Science Fair and the SSP Fellows Institute as well as the Science Talent Search is gargantuan. 10 million bucks could get them a few more staff!!

Ways to make it better...

I could attend the Fellows Institute for the rest of my professional career!! It was THAT GOOD! This whole experience has been amazing!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the word out about who it is! It's amazing how many people know about their "products" like ISEF and STS, but no one know about SSP!

One thing I'd also say is that...

It would behoove technology and science related corporations to give financially to SSP! They make the most of the incredible talents, creativity & intelligence of their staff! We all benefit from the good SSP does in the long run!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
