Thank you for informing about the NSF program. I am checking it out. It would be wonderful to start something up that would fall in with the mentoring needs, but unfortunately my time as a business owner is such that I can only contribute as a mentor and not as a foundation initiator.
Recalling when I was in high school (boarding school), it was as you tell it. The girls I lived with would play dumb during the day so the boys would like them, finish their AP calculus homework in an hour at night and then go back to pretending they couldn't add four numbers together the next day. Guess which one won out in the long run? Perhaps that should be the national marketing focus: Math and Science are sexy.
