Science education programs - for decades, Society for Science & the Public has offered many of the most revered Science education programs in the world: the regeneron Science talent search, the intel international Science and engineering fair, and broadcom masters (math, applied Science, technology and engineering for rising stars). Through these programs, which encourage independent scientific research and project-based learning, the Society is helping to grown the pipeline of stem professionals by empowering our future generation of talent and nurturing the desire within students to become scientists, engineers and inventors.
Outreach - the Society expanded its work to ensure that more young people, regardless of their resources, can access the Society's scientific journalism and experience the benefits of Science research competitions. Through Science news in high schools and the stem research grant program we are providing teachers across the nation with more resources for their classroom. Through the advocate grant program, we are providing educators with the resources they need to help underserved students participate in Science research competitions, and through the stem action grant program, we are providing funding to innovative nonprofits that promote stem education.
