Nonprofit for the Advancement of Science Education.
Isaac's Ant Foundation was created in honor of Isaac Calley. Isaac passed away at 16 due to a seizure that resulted from a brain injury at birth. He enjoyed contemplating the fundamental questions in life and stated at the age of eight, "Time is the greatest force in nature, because without time, nothing happens." Isaac felt strongly about the individual's responsibility to make the world a better place. This compelled him to have a special interest in helping individuals with cognitive and physical disabilities. Isaac extended his compassion and love for the vulnerable and underappreciated to his love of ants. The more he learned about ants, the more he wanted to teach others about how truly amazing they are.
Isaac's Ant Foundation continues to works in his name. We offer scholarships through our endowment program for individuals with disabilities that are pursuing science education. We also install ant exhibits and offering ant education, because when we look out for the little guys, we make better stewards.
ISAAC'S FUN ANT FACT #1
If you are an ant you have a social stomach and a private stomach. Your private stomach is for you to use, but your social stomach is one you share! All your sisters and the queen share what they ate with you and you so the same. That's right, they regurgitate what they ate and offer it to you and you do the same! That's taking "sharing and caring" to a whole new level!
