MISSON STATEMENT
 

The mission of the Savannah Science Seminar is to promote an understanding and appreciation for science through informative, participatory presentations and hands on workshops (HOWsessions) in the fields of engineering, technology, mathematics, and the medical practices, to our motivated and highly qualified secondary school students in Savannah and Chatham/Effingham/Bryan County. Through these endeavors, we are intending to encourage students to pursue careers in the science arena, and as they become professionally knowledgeable, strongly consider returning to the Savannah area to increase our community's ability to foster and enhance these professional practices.

** PLEASE NOTE: Savannah Science Seminar is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization supported generously through efforts of public donations and the Board of Directors. Further, Savannah Science Seminar is an all volunteer organization and thusly so, all donations go directly towards paying for events and supplies (i.e., robotic vehicles, rockets, paper and pens, etc.)!

The GOALS are:

  1) To provide students with opportunities for creativity, self-expression, and the ability to think out of the box.
     
  2) To teach methods for problem-solving.
     
  3) To develop natural curiosity about the world around us.
     
  4) To stimulate interest in pursuing educational studies in the physical, biological, or technology based sciences.
     
  5) Encourage interest in a scientific career.
     
  6) Showcase science and technology based businesses in the Coastal Empire area.
     
These goals will be ACCOMPLISHED by:
     
  1) Establishing a highly proactive Board of Directors from sectors in education and business that will foster educational programs that entice and learning and thinking processes surrounding the sciences by student members.
     
  2) Providing a future oriented focus with strong programs for the savannah science seminars and corresponding workshops.
     
  3) Facilitating peer interactions for similarly-focused science students.
