The Senior Science Society Foundation, Inc. exists to leverage the information within the minds of Harford County senior scientists to benefit county youth by working closely with the Senior Science Society within the educational community, business, and government organizations to foster and promote the scientific, rational and creative thinking processes through education, networking, advocacy, and professional and field development.


  • Be a beacon for science philanthropy. Attract scientists to expand and accelerate the appreciation of science in Harford County Youth.

  • Improve the message of the messenger. Augment and supplement the learning experience through scientific advice, cooperative mentoring and encouragement, realizing elementary schools may not always have dedicated science teachers and that teachers at all levels could benefit from the Society's involvement.

  • Enable parents to become Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) advocates.
    Become a respected science sounding board that supports educational institutions. Help awareness of and attentiveness to the benefits of science within the family, Harford County, and the greater community.
