Our pre-scientists are students from across the United States, spanning several grade levels. We work specifically with low-income schools, where we found students with boundless energy, and not nearly enough exposure to the wonderful world of science. That’s why we started Letters to a Pre-Scientist.
This video is of a TED talk in 2010 about one woman’s experience in Bertie County, where our program’s first pre-scientists lived. If you don’t have time for the whole thing, watch the first 3 minutes and 30 seconds to get an understanding of how much communities like this need your support.
