Encourage Science Research in Middle and High Schools

Meghan Shea

The imagination and curiosity of younger students may hold the key to the innovations we strive for. Encourage the students in your life to pursue science research: judge at a local science fair, mentor young researchers, help bring science programs to local schools, or donate to programs like Society for Science & the Public that work to promote an appreciation of science.

    I am leading a science camp in my village to help introduce kids to scientific tools and abstract concepts through games and art. We are discussing millions and billions, alien adaptations, painting a wall sized mural map of the world, and the impact of our garbage and plastic waste. The kids are loving it and keep coming back!

    A few months ago I had the privilege of being one of the judges in the Europan Robotics Festival, hold in Tarragona, Spain. It's amazing to see such a lot of kids and teenagers sharing their passion for learning, improving their designs, and fair play competing, offering their help from one to the other.

    I work at a library and love helping kids and teens find science books that relate to their interest. It's wonderful to see them walking away with books in their hands; eager to learn.
