Kami ingin ikut merawat dan membangun bangsa ini sesuai bidang dan kemampuan kami. Kini saatnya menumbuhkan candu bagi anak muda untuk berkecimpung di dunia sains dan penelitian.
Sumatera Barat punya potensi yang sangat besar namun belum tergali secara maksimal. Maka, membentuk peneliti muda yang handal adalah salah satu investasi terbesar.
Sudah waktunya Sumatera Barat ikut berkembang di bidang Sains dan Penelitian. Kami berharap, Sekolah Ilmuwan Minangkabau (SIM) bisa mewujudkan cita-cita besar itu.
Sekolah Ilmuwan Minangkabau menjadi media untuk menjaring peneliti dan ilmuwan muda jenjang SMA. Menurut saya, program SIM sangat bagus untuk diikuti.
Seneng banget ikut SIM ini untuk pertama kalinya. Temen-temen dan kakak-kakak agen seru. Agen bisa diajak ngobrol bukan hanya tentang belajar, tetapi juga tentang hal perkuliahan.
