One of IMSA’s founding principles is to “significantly influence life on our planet.” IMSA, since its inception, has been at the forefront of innovation. Our educational programs have profoundly affected the way science education is done. Our students and alumni have changed our communication through the development of groundbreaking technologies like Mosaic and Netscape and our human experience through the continual development of innovative business, social, educational, and research activities.
Humanity, as a whole, is increasingly faced with global challenges that require coordinated, cooperative scientific/technical solutions. Through ISSF 2018 we will strive to foster such cooperation and collaboration among participating students, teachers and principals. In addition, we seek to explore the historical and cultural context of complex global problems, enabling all participants to respond to these challenges in a way that incorporates the varied viewpoints and capabilities of our international group.
