Why Do It

Here's What Past High School Students Have Said About Science Buddies

"[Science Buddies] gives you the chance to share what you have learned with someone who hasn't learned it yet. It feels as if you are helping this person along in their education."
— Melyssa, 17

"I learned the valid points of working with a team to help finish a project and I really enjoyed working with my buddy."
— Hillary, 16

"I had a great experience learning how to teach and help out younger kids. It was also fun to take part in a science fair project again since I haven't done one since 7th grade."
— Dan, 16
