Clare Wilson, a 9th grader at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School is a Delegate of the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders in Lowell, MA on June 29th July 1st, 2017.
The Congress is an honorsonly program for high school students who are passionate about science,
technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). The purpose of this event is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country who aspire to be scientists and technologists, to stay true to their dream and, after the event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.
Clare was nominated by Dr. John C. Mather, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics and Science Director of the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists to represent Alabama based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and passion for science and technology.
During the three-day Congress, Clare will join students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates
and National Medal of Science recipients talk about leading scientific research; be given advice from
deans of the world’s top tech universities; be inspired by fellow teen science prodigies; and learn about
cuttingedge advances and the future of science and technology.
“This is a crucial time in America when we need more nimble-minded and creative scientists and
technologists who are even better prepared for a future that is changing exponentially,” said Richard
Rossi, Executive Director, National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists. “Focused, bright
and determined students like Clare are our future and she deserves all the mentoring and guidance
we can give her.”
The Academy offers free services and programs to students who have the desire to learn more about their
future in science or technology. Some of the services and programs the Academy offers include online
social networks through which future scientists and technologists can communicate; opportunities for
students to be guided and mentored by tech and science leaders; and communications for parents and
students on college acceptance and finances, skills acquisition, internships, career guidance and much
The Academy was founded on the belief that science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)
education plays a critical role in enabling the United States to remain the economic and technological
leader of the global marketplace of the 21st century and that we must identify prospective talent at the
earliest possible age and help these students acquire the necessary experience and skills to take them to
the doorstep of vital careers. Based in Washington, DC and with an office in Boston, MA, the Academy
was chartered as a nonpartisan, taxpaying institution to help address this crisis by working to identify,
encourage and mentor students who wish to devote their lives to advances in society as scientists,
technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
