What keeps young people working on hard problems in science & technology? Research shows it's most often the sustained support of inspiring teachers, mentors, & communities with shared values.
This month, Foresight is targeting the top 300 science, engineering, & entrepreneurially-oriented college clubs, high school STEM teachers, & gifted youth programs across the country... and connecting them with great ideas & people!
We're sending bright young minds the following books by speakers, advisors, & supporters of the Foresight community:
