We love having the program! I think it is a great way for the kids to learn and be immersed— 5th grade teacher at Lafayette School, Everett

I continue to enjoy being associated with Science from Scientists. I think the modules we’ve been able to do complement our science curriculum and help enhance our study. I like having a variety of visitors add to what we do at school so having a scientist from the program come in on a regular basis provides the students with a positive role model for this discipline. I look forward to staying associated with Science from Scientists in the future.— 4th grade teacher at John D. Runkle School, Brookline

Instilling in children the desire to learn and guiding them through this process via excellent teaching is our ongoing commitment to students. Congratulations to [Science from Scientists] for providing a discovery approach designed to enhance the learning experience for all our students. In addition to science, we find out student’s skills in research, informational literacy, reading, writing, math and social science on the rise due to this all-inclusive program.— Nicholas Quaratiello, Principal Paul Revere School, Revere

I cannot thank you enough for allowing SfS to be part of McCall. … The role model that SfS shares with McCall sends a wonderful message to our students that science is an important part of our lives. There is also an underlying message—SfS individuals have selected science to study as a student and, more importantly, to select it as a career is powerful!— 6th grade teacher at McCall Middle School, Winchester

The Amgen Foundation is proud to support Science from Scientists. This is one of the most inspiring organizations we have had the pleasure to work with. You can see the enthusiasm and excitement as the students work “side by side” with scientists conducting hands-on experiments. This program aligns strongly with Amgen’s philosophy of inspiring the next generation of scientists!— Executive Director, Research & Massachusetts Site Head, Dr. Margaret Chu-Moye

At [school] I was introduced to a group of young scientists … who began mentoring … students … for the school’s first science fair. The [SfS] lessons were fun; they were taught by people passionate about science and their energy was contagious. We were learning science vocabulary and using these words in our classroom discussions. My curiosity was piquing and the momentum was building. I was eager to pick my project topic and begin working.” Read the full letter— Leslie H., former student

My daughter attended your February Forensics camp. She had an amazing time. I just want to say a huge thank you to you and your staff for providing my daughter with such an amazing experience. It is so hard to find challenging and engaging projects for teenage girls interested in science and your program was all that and more! In [her] own words, ‘It’s so nice to be in an intellectually stimulating environment where people actually enjoy learning.’ I could not agree more. A huge thank you from the bottom of my heart. Looking forward to summer camp! Please let me know if there are any other programs that you run for middle schoolers.— Parent, Get a Clue! CSI February Vacation Program at the Whitehead Institute
