Do you know any high school seniors looking to major in physics? Simpson College recently received a NSF grant that will provide 15 financially needy incoming students with financial assistance ($33,600 over four years), mentorship, and research opportunities as they pursue a degree in a mathematical STEM field. For this reason, we are recruiting talented high school seniors to come to Simpson as undergraduates.
For information on the Carver Bridge to STEM Success Scholarship Program visit the following website: http://simpson.edu/carver-bridge-scholars/
If you know any students who might be interested in this opportunity, we are more than happy to discuss more over email or phone. Contact Professor Aaron Santos at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 515-961-1826.

I really enjoyed attending and presenting at the IA APT Fall Conference
on November 1, 2008. As I stated in my presentation, SENSR has a
special offer to all IA APT members. We are reducing the price of our
General Series Products, the GP1 and GP2 from $599 to $549. This offer
is good until March 1, 2009. Our commitment to education and developing
products that advance scientific inquiry and literacy runs deep
throughout our organization.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the GP1 and GP2.
