Read what some people had to say about their Society experiences:
A student: “I was a participant in Intel STS and I can honestly say I would not be where I am today had it not been for SSP.”
A reader: “I have been reading Science News for close to 40 years since I discovered it by accident in the periodicals section of my local library. Its succinct format and quality of information provides a service I've found nowhere else. It has helped me be a more informed citizen.”
A parent: “Our daughter was selected as a finalist to participate in Broadcom MASTERS the first year it launched. What an incredible experience for a 13 year-old from a small, isolated, rural area to work with other like- minded kids. She is still in touch with many of these kids from across the country that she met. Currently she is president of the after school Science Club and mentors other elementary and middle school budding scientists. She has continued to compete in science competitions in high school while juggling the most rigorous academic load offered, participating in varsity sports, working, and participating in an assortment of other extra-curricular activities. As I write this review on the sunniest, summer day in July, she is working on the draft application for the Intel Science Talent Search. You inspired a young impressible teenager that anything is possible. Thank you!”
An alum: "I have personally found the Society for Science & the Public to be an outstandingly impactful organization. As an alumnus of a variety of their student-oriented programs, I have first-hand experience of the extent to which the Society has been able to promote the sciences in education and provide exceptional experiences for the students involved; it can and has been life-changing."
The Top-Rated Award demonstrates the Society’s dedication to all of the students, parents, teachers and science enthusiasts who want opportunities to keep up to date on science news, improve their research skills and share a love of science with like-minded innovators.
