Scientists in School's Executive Director, Cindy Adams.

A Message From the Executive Director Cindy Adams

When you walk into a Scientists in School workshop, you will see jaws drop at the sight of an unexpected happening, you will hear “wow’s” and “oohs” emitted from groups of children as they explore their hypotheses, you will feel the buzz of excitement and energy hum through the air. You will also see kids mesmerized when they realize that science is everywhere—science makes up the world around us.

Every time we enter a classroom or community setting, our goal is to encourage kids to dream big and think about a future or a career that perhaps they never thought was possible, until they had Scientists in School. We want children to believe they can make a difference in their world and achieve their aspirations.
