Help develop kids’ love of science

New local group, meeting tonight in Tupper Lake, plans to have high school Science Ambassadors help teach younger students

April 17, 2013
By David Gardner , Project ASAP

Project ASAP stands for the American Science Ambassador Program, a nonprofit organization that tackles a huge educational (and therefore national) problem: Our U.S. students rank a lowly 17th (out of 34) when compared to other industrialized nations. We live in a global economy where science and technology is commonplace and growing; how is it possible that the country that invented the airplane and then flew to the moon, that invented television and the Internet, could fall so far behind the rest of the world when it comes to science education?
