Positive Experiences from Mentoring: The Development of “Small Great Scientists”
Gisela Kristoff
Small Great Scientists Participating in the internship program was certainly a rewarding way of bringing science and environmental education to SETAC and the local community. Activities such as these proved to be motivation for young students and an experience that meant a lot to me, personally. The dedication and success of these two students was also a positive experience for the organizers, all the professional in attendance and for the SETAC Argentina Chapter. We hope this is only the start of great success in the coming years.

SETAC BarcelonaSession Summaries from SETAC Barcelona
Bill Goodfellow and Tim Canfield
Every year, the editors of the SETAC Globe have offered session chairs the opportunity to provide summaries of their session from SETAC annual meetings. Normally, we receive approximately 6–8 summaries from session chairs, which will then be published in the next few issues of the Globe. This year, we tried something different and provided a template for chairs to submit their summaries. Much to our surprise, we received a record number of submission, and as of today, we have received 24 summary articles. Therefore, we have decided that publishing a special issue later this summer would be appropriate.
