    The incongruity of the reviewers’ comments with the criteria that one thinks should govern the evaluation of a paper or proposal is what makes the cartoon funny. But, as is always true in Sidney Harris’s cartoons, there is another message under the surface:  Perhaps scientists should embrace the “broader audience” of their papers, or the “outreach” criteria of the granting agencies more openheartedly. Nothing in the nature of the world or the understanding of scientists would be damaged if humor and suspense were allowed to enter scientific papers. Gatekeepers relax!

    Project Seed provides opportunities for students who historically lack exposure to scientific careers by allowing them to spend a summer conducting hands-on research with a scientist in academic, industry, and government research laboratories. Students receive a fellowship award and a chance to receive a Project SEED college scholarship.

    The 2018 program began on June 12 and culminated in a poster session and celebration on August 3. This year, we had 12 research fellows (pictured above) and 12 mentors including new mentors Dr. Andrew Barron, Dr. Venkata Pavan Raja Manuri, Dr. Dan Villalanti and Joy Cocchiara. The complete list can be found here. The ACS Project Seed program is celbrating its 50th anniversary and GHS is celebrating its 10th! Over the past 10 years, 48 mentors have have worked with 128 high school students. A complete list of participants, mentors and sponsors can be found here.
