Encouraging the Next Generation of Scientific Leaders

Science is important for advancement yet fewer youths are pursuing science and engineering degrees in college. How does one overcome this? An interest in science needs to be cultivated early in life. With today’s curriculum, high school seniors pursuing a science-based college degree should take science classes throughout high school. And to make them aware of and thus interested in taking these high school classes, their curiosity needs to have been generated at the middle school and/or junior high level.

The Harvey L. Foster Foundation for Science Education strives to create this fascination in science through a variety of means. As you look through our website, you will learn about the areas we are impacting. The Foundation is always looking for new ideas to create this excitement and ways for you to become involved. So contact us and become a sponsor, donate some time, donate lab equipment, or become an idea generator. All help is welcome.
