Society For Science And The Public
Society for Science & the Public promotes science education through many programs that benefit students, teachers and the public in general. With the assistance of outstanding sponsors, science research is recognized with international science fair activities and talent search opportunities with first-class organization. As a high school student from a rural county in North Florida, I was an international science fair winner forty years ago. I wanted other students in my little rural county high school to have the same opportunity I had, so I returned there to teach science courses with a research component.
SSP is making a REAL DIFFERENCE in science education in schools across the country, and I can’t think of a better investment of funds by an individual or organization. The future of our budding science students, and equitable science education across the US, depends on it. Compared with five years ago, both citizens and scientists are less upbeat about the scientific enterprise.
Chapter 3 looks at public and scientists’ attitudes on each of these issues in more detail along with several topics asked only of the general public, including access to experimental medical treatments, bioengineering and genetic modifications. While a majority of the public sees U.S. scientific achievements in positive terms,the share saying U.S. scientific achievements are the best in the world or above average is down 11 points to 54% today, compared with 65% in 2009. Despite broadly similar views about the overall place of science in America, citizens and scientists often see science-related issues through different sets of eyes. 75% of AAAS scientists say too little STEM education for grades K-12 is a major factor in the public’s limited knowledge about science. An overwhelming majority of scientists see the public’s limited scientific knowledge as a problem for science.
It was a truly memorable and inspiring meeting and we spoke about the Research Teachers Conference, Society for Science and Public, Regeneron, and STEM Education. He also appreciated the partnership of Regeneron with the Society for Science and Public in sponsoring the 2017 Research Teachers Conference and the Regeneron Science Talent Search. The Senator actively listened to our active thoughts and proposals for STEM education in the country in general and in Georgia in particular. He assured us of his support to further strengthening the STEM education in the State. What a wonderful thought it was for the Senator’s office to present us with delicious and nutritious peanuts of Georgia, the peanut capital of the world.
The National Geographic sponsorship is part of the Society’s new multitiered sponsorship model for Regeneron ISEF in which a variety of companies and organizations can support different judging categories, events and delegations of Regeneron ISEF finalists. The Society is continuing to seek additional sponsors who are similarly committed to furthering the future of science and engineering, and will be announcing other sponsors in the coming weeks and months. This report focuses on a comparison of the views of the general public and those of AAAS scientists as a whole. Follow up reports planned for later this year will analyze views of the general public in more detail, especially by demographic, religious, and political subgroups.
There were two different office spaces and I would have liked to be in just one so I could get to know other people in the organization a bit better. As an alumna of the Science Talent Search, she is the the President & CEO and publisher of the award winning magazine, Science News. Maya attended the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics and became involved in the mentorship program. Her project, “Isolation and Characterization of a Tetracycline Resistant Plasmid of an Animal Isolate, Streptococcus faecalis, SF2” was submitted to the Westinghouse Science Talent Search which is now sponsored by Regeneron. When typing in this field, a list of search results will appear and be automatically updated as you type.
Nonprofit Explorer has organizations claiming tax exemption in each of the 27 subsections of the 501 section of the tax code, and which have filed a Form 990, Form 990EZ or Form 990PF. Taxable trusts and private foundations that are required to file a form 990PF are also included. Every organization that has been recognized as tax exempt by the IRS has to file Form 990 every year, unless they make less than $200,000 in revenue and have less than $500,000 in assets, in which case they have to file form 990-EZ. Organizations making less than $50,000 don’t have to file either form but do have to let the IRS they’re still in business via a Form 990N “e-Postcard.” Glassdoor has salaries, wages, tips, bonuses, and hourly pay based upon employee reports and estimates. BBB Wise Giving Alliance provides charity reports, which help donors review charities and find a trustworthy charity to support. We also conduct charity assessments to help charities improve their practices and demonstrate trust.
