Mission & Vision/Why SciComm
At Sci4Teens, we realize that many teens across the globe are passionate about STEM, but need futher guidance on how to communicate their research or their understanding of a certain topic. This is why Sci4Teens creates equal opportunities for students looking to pursue STEM, humanities, and science communication (SciComm) through our contests (involving writing, art, infographics, and more), workshops, and newsletter. We hope that through this organization, more teens will understand the importance of communicating their work, and can apply these skills in future careers.
