To "bring the best minds in the world to IMSA," the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy launched its Great Minds Program in the Fall of 1998. Leading the program is Nobel Laureate Dr. Leon Lederman, a "founding father of IMSA."
This story is the first in a series to appear in upcoming NOVAs, charting the development of the program and its impact on IMSA students and staff, and other students and teachers in Illinois.
