MacKenzie Lynn heading to tech congress

MADISON – MacKenzie Lynn, a sophomore at James Clemens High School, has been selected as a delegate to the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders.

The congress delegates will convene in Lowell, Mass. on June 29 through July 1.

The congress is an honors-only program for high-school students with a dedicated interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics or STEM. The conference’s purpose 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 provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.

Dr. John C. Mather nominated Lynn based on her outstanding achievements in academics, leadership potential and passion for science and technology. Mather won the Nobel Prize in Physics and Science, and he is Director of the National Academy for Future Scientists and Technologists.  

Lynn will join other student delegates during the three-day congress to hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners discuss leading innovations. The honor students will receive advice from deans of Ivy League and top schools on expectations for college entrance and studies.

Teenage prodigies in technology fields will speak. Delegates will learn about cutting-edge advances and the future in the dynamic world of today’s technology and science.

“This is a crucial time in America when we need more nimble-minded and creative scientists and technologists to learn more about their future” in the field, Richard Rossi said. Rossi is Executive Director of National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists.

“Focused, bright and determined students like MacKenzie Lynn are our future. She deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give her,” Rossi said.

The academy offers free services and programs to students who want to learn more future possibilities in science. The available programs include online social networks with contact to future scientists, opportunities for teaching leaders to guide and mentor students and details for parents and students about college acceptance, internships, finances, acquiring skills and career guidance.

National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists believes professionals must identify students with STEM skills and inclinations at the earliest possible age and assist students in acquiring essential experience and skills.

The academy has headquarters in Washington, D.C. and offices in Boston, Mass. For more information, visit scitechleaders.com.
