The Education Outreach Day for ISEF is one of those days when we as teachers can expose the students to current researchers in their field that they can recognize as peers. It is a wonderful learning opportunity that engages and inspires students to contribute to the scientific community earlier in life.

Grey Hill Academy Students at ISEF Education Outreach Day

This is the first time my Native American students and I had an opportunity to be at the event [ISEF] and meet the finalists. I think it was a great occasion for my students and has motivated them to dream big. I am certain that my students were encouraged by observing and interacting with the ISEF finalists, who travelled from different parts of the world to share their brilliant projects.

This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to experience all that is new and exciting in science and engineering. If one project can inspire one of our students, then the experience was worth it. The students found some of the projects unbelievably amazing. My seniors, who went as freshmen last time, still talk about the experience. Without the generosity of your donors and sponsors, we would not be able to participate — so thank you. Science fairs like ISEF are important to show our students what a little curiosity can do.
