In 2010, millions of students were inspired and impacted by SSP education programs, including eight SSP alumni who displayed their work for President Obama at the first White House Science Fair. Additionally, more than six million people looked to Science News and Science News for Kids this year to learn about significant scientific discoveries.
SSP also established a six-year partnership with the Broadcom Foundation, launching the Broadcom MASTERS to inspire U.S. middle school students, who are in a critical period when interest in science often takes root. Also in 2010 for the second year, the Society, with support from the Intel Foundation, provided resources and training to teachers across the country who are providing their underserved students independent research opportunities for the first time.
There are still challenges to science in our classrooms and across our society. Many students lack access to a robust or even satisfactory science education. Public discourse too often exemplifies a lack of understanding of the basic principles of science.
Please join our efforts to advance science. With member and alumni support in 2011, the Society will expand its coverage and reporting on the beauty of science and continue to inspire the young people who will determine our shared future.
The SSP Fellows 2011 application period is now open. If you are an educator, this may be your chance to be named one of ten high school teachers from across the country competitively selected as an SSP Fellow.
The SSP Fellowship, with generous support from Intel, provides teachers financial and training resources to support and inspire the success of their most enthusiastic science students. SSP Fellows guide students to produce project-based research of the highest quality, such as is selected for SSP's premiere science competition, the Intel Science Talent Search.
The SSP Fellows Class of 2011, who will be announced in March, will each receive $8,500, which is renewable annually for up to four years, as well as training and resources to start a high quality scientific research program in their schools. Included in that training is a one-week, fully paid trip to attend the SSP Fellows Institute in Washington, DC, at which teachers also earn graduate credit.

The Memory Test
By Stephen Ornes
Pop quiz: You've got a vocabulary list to learn for your French class. What's the best way to study?
You might be tempted to stare at the words for a long time — reading, then reading again. And again. After this exercise — with more staring, followed by more reading — you might hope the words and translations should have been copied into your head like songs into an iPod. Read More
