Society For Science & The Public Reviews And Ratings
Fully nine-in-ten (92%) AAAS scientists consider scientific achievements in the U.S. to be the best in the world (45%) or above average (47%). Just 16% of AAAS scientists and 29% of adults in the general public considers K-12 STEM education in the U.S. to be the best or above average compared with other industrialized countries. Both groups see U.S. scientific achievements and medical treatment in a more positive light, by comparison.
Americans recognize the accomplishments of scientists in key fields and, despite considerable dispute about the role of government in other realms, there is broad public support for government investment in scientific research.

Science News, MASTERS Science and Engineering Fair, Regeneron Science and Engineering Fair, are just three major contributions and opportunities for our students to participate in rigorous science research. Overall, Society for Science and the Public is providing resources for our kids to access science in a multitude of different ways. The 2019 Broadcom MASTERS competition for middle school students selected 300 semi-finalists and brought 30 middle-school student finalists from 47 states together in Washington, DC to present their original projects.
By comparison, those who say the best science guides land use regulations only some of the time or never are less positive. Half (50%) of this group says it is a good time and an equal share says it is a bad time for science overall. The same pattern holds for each of the four types of regulations considered in the survey. Scientists who perceive a more frequent influence of the best science on regulations are also more likely to say this is a good time for science compared with scientists who see less frequent impact of the best scientific information on policy rules. 79% of citizens say that science has made life easier for most people, while just15% say it has made life more difficult. However, the balance of opinion is slightly less positive today than in 2009 when positive views outpaced negative ones by a margin of 83% to 10%.

I attended the Research Teachers Conference at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Washington, DC hosted by the Society for Science and the Public and generously sponsored by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals during the weekend of October 13, 2017 to October 15, 2017. I am a veteran science teacher of 22+ years and I must say that after having attended countless conferences over the years, the Research Teachers Conference was by far, the most impactful professional development opportunity I have been afforded. For the first time in a long time, I felt a genuine sense of appreciation for the humble practioners of the art of teaching science. The Research Teachers Conference recharged my passion as a professional and I feel more committed to providing my students with a world-class education than ever before. The presenters who conducted the breakout sessions were knowledgeable as well as relatable and shared their experiences with unselfish enthusiasm which I greatly appreciated. Our hosts, the Society for Science and the Public were the consummate event planners.
