Dr. Torres, President of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy (IMSA), shares his excitement and vision for IMSA hosting the 14th Annual International Student Science Fair, June 27th - July 1st, 2018
Newswise — For 5-days this summer IMSA students, staff, and faculty will welcome some 150+ students and educators from over 30 leading STEM schools from across the world, to share and collaborate. The academy chose three of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): #ZeroHunger, #CleanWater, and #AffordableEnergy as the events focus. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience IMSA learning innovations, enjoy greater Chicago attractions and develop ideas and projects focused on the global goals to take back to their home schools.
