Science Buddies is a non-profit organization with a goal to provide students of all ages up to high school level with easy access to free ideas for science projects and learning materials to help them understand contemporary science. Donations of sponsors and private donors fund Science Buddies' activities.
Scientists employed by the organization, often in cooperation with universities, high-tech companies and government agencies, create the content for the Science Buddies' website. Besides more than 1,000 science project ideas, the site offers project guides, a tool for matching the student's interests with a suitable project, and resources for teachers guiding their students on the website. It also offers students unique opportunities to discuss their projects with professional scientists and engineers.
