How will the state, nation and world we know change in this new century? How will we produce our food, travel from place to place, care for our fellow human beings and sustain the energy to power it all? How will nations communicate and citizens receive news? What medical, ecological or informational challenges are on the horizon? Who will initiate life-changing innovations, and how will the next generation learn to do the same? The Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy asks these questions of its students and teachers, other Illinois students and teachers, and the public at large - and in doing so challenges them to explore new horizons, embrace future possibilities and live their dreams.
