The National Academy of Future Scientists – Home

What People Are Saying…

The Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders was an incredible experience for my son and also for me as an educator AND parent. The speakers, some of the most fascinating scientists and inventors of our time, were educational, inspiring and entertaining. From Nobel Prize winners to teen-age inventors, this was the opportunity of a lifetime to hear from so many great minds in one place. The value of the advice, tips and information that my son and I received surpassed the admission fee. My son also met several speakers personally and was able to get some great information on applying to top-tier colleges. As a parent and an educator, I HIGHLY recommend and support the Congress of Future Scientists and Technologists.

I cannot thank you enough for your mentoring help. I have saved each of your videos to watch over and over. You are a blessing to many of us who may have thought we had little potential. This week, I had the opportunity to speak with many recruiters during the high school college night. I felt comfortable & confident as I approached representatives from great schools; MIT, Purdue, UT, Notre Dame… If you find time to visit the San Antonio area, I would love to shake your hand.

If any of you have excelling high school kids/ grandkids that love tech, computers, science, math, engineering, inventing stuff; and have dreams that boggle your mind; check this out for next summer. My daughter attended, and loved it. Parents can view from afar, and be inspired, too.

Such a delightful and inspiring gathering of past, present, and future leaders in the respective fields that will keep the American dream alive for generations to come. Thank you Academy for uniting us these past few days and are looking forward to our future.

Coolest thing to listen to buzz aldrin #SciTechLeaders #buzzaldrin

I bought my son as a Delegate with the expectation that he will be inspired and begin to acknowledge his gifts of intelligence, logic, and memory and how to begin to canalize thoughts, ideas, and dreams. This conference will not only inspire your very intelligent, extraordinary child, but will also inspire and wake up the dreams a parent or guardian have left in the back-burner for our own choice or waiting for the opportunity to appear. This life-changing Congress experience will deliver beyond your expectations, it will energize your mind towards your own greatness!

I am the ‘naysayer’ grandparent that spent thousands of dollars seeking council and “help” only to receive little to none with my five sons. After arriving, and spending every minute in awe
and amazement, I now know this Congress is the real thing. Not only has it inspired my granddaughter and presented great direction, it has inspired me also. This is a must experience. I wish every teenager could be present at such an event. Life changing.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for an amazing experience at the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders. My son was truly blown away by the 2 1/2 days of mentoring by Nobel Prize Laureates, Scientists, Futurists and Technologists. He was inspired in a way that shows he is becoming more of what he is and aspires to be. In short, he is motivated to go even further. Although very bright, our son is very reserved and finds it difficult to step out into groups and crowds. He finds it hard to connect with others. What was fantastic about the Congress was that the entire group was composed of kids just like our son. All of the kids he met were just wonderful and he connected with a number of them. What a difference it makes to be surrounded with others who know you, who respect you, who are just like you! Nirvana in Nerd-Dom.

Thank you so very much from a not only a parent and not only a single parent but from one who has raised her daughter like many with struggles. I am still in awe. To finally have her dream became so real thanks to you all. I do hope that she will continue to hear from your organization as you said to continue the motivation. I would like to be a reference. I would like to let other single parents know that it is worth the fund raising and getting the money together. Also If a Security Officer/single mother can raise the money to get her child to such an amazing event. anybody can! If we as parents aren’t going to show our children their dreams are important then why are we expecting them to care on their own! Thank you again! Lots of LOVE a Proud MOMMA!

It was truly an honor to be part of this event. Since the day my son opened the invitation, up till this morning he can’t stop talking and thinking about his future, Nathan loves technology since he was about 3 years old, he was a very sick baby who found refuge in electronics, trains, Legos and Thomas trains with circuit boards. Yes this is his TRIBE! I am very proud of him and thankful for mentors like you who show the younger generations that the future in NOW! Thank you Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists.

I am not a skeptic but I am always wary of things (offers) that might not be what they seem or are advertised to be. I came into the Congress with that wariness. But, I came away convinced that it inspired, motivated, focused, and affirmed by child. These children were able to relate to gifted children, because the speakers are gifted. I highly recommend the Congress for parents of children of high intellect, children who just need focus or direction, or children who are already certain what field of study they will pursue and are just seeking motivation, inspiration, and hands on help with the college process.

Thank you, Academy, for this amazing event! Our daughter is already talking about how she’ll take what’s she’s learned and apply it to her career choice…and about attending next year’s Academy! As parents, we are so appreciative of the opportunity, socially as well as mentally. She made friends that have similar interests and I hope they stay in touch. Again, thank you! Greatness Awaits!
