ISC was founded on the premise that understanding the scientific method and scientific discoveries is crucial to a well-rounded life. Appreciation of science and technology enhances our appreciation of our world and ourselves. It makes us better decision makers, smarter consumers, more knowledgeable voters, and better-informed citizens. These subjects are also critical to understanding many of the major issues facing our nation. Yet, funding for STEM outreach pales in comparison to that for arts and culture.
Carl Sagan once observed:

“We live in a society that is exquisitely dependent upon science and technology in which hardly anyone understands anything about science and technology.”

ISC is certainly working to change that.
