Science News for Kids was launched in 2003 by Society for Science & the Public (SSP), a nonprofit membership organization based in Washington, D.C. In addition to its publications, SSP is known for math and science competitions for young people around the world.
For 70 years, SSP’s science education programs—the Intel Science Talent Search (formerly the Westinghouse Science Talent Search), the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, and the Broadcom MASTERS—have inspired generations of science enthusiasts, including Nobel Laureates, Lasker Awardees, National Medal of Science recipients, and nearly 50,000 other distinguished alumni.
SSP believes that educating and inspiring the scientists of tomorrow, whose vision will usher in new solutions to global challenges, is vital to our common future.
We hope you will learn more about each of our competitions and perhaps even participate!
