Personal Reflections

Welcome to the 2018-2019 academic year!

We begin the year with great energy fresh from a summer hosting the 14th Annual International Student Science Fair (ISSF 2018), Alumni Weekend, and youth camps on our campus in Aurora, as well as across Illinois in Belleville, Chicago, Springfield and South Holland.

Our hosting of ISSF 2018 was the jewel in our crown this year, it being the first time the annual international event was held in the US. ISSF 2018 was a great success for all involved. We hosted over 90 students, educators and school leaders from over 30 schools who traveled thousands of miles to IMSA from approximately 20 countries for the event. During the five-day program, delegates participated in a music-inspired opening ceremony and visited world-class research labs and facilities, science museums and attractions in the Chicagoland area. Student delegates shared their research posters and research presentations and all delegates enjoyed three days of programming dedicated to discussion and ideation on three of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: Zero Hunger, Clean Water and Sanitation and Affordable and Clean Energy. This provided attendees with the opportunity to collaborate on possible ideas for solutions and to inspire continuation of the discussion in their home countries. Our sharing of the events and activities through social media reached well over 100,000 people internationally, showing IMSA to be a world leading learning Academy at the forefront of international conversations on STEM teaching and learning.
