"Advancing public scientific literacy is very important to me personally — especially in today’s political climate, where everyone’s opinions seem to have truth value. That’s why I’m a Society member.
I love the Society’s mission to communicate science to the general public and to encourage young people to do science well on a global scale.
And I love Science News. It keeps me up-to-date with science outside my primary fields that I would have otherwise missed. The coverage is credible and accessible — I share the links with the community college classes I teach, and they use the references at the end of articles to find out more.
For young people, the Society’s work is so valuable in getting them into STEM careers. The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) excites me the most. You see their projects and think: “These kids are going to change the world.”
Securing the future of science is going to be about communication and inspiration. I think you guys are doing a great job." — Denise Signorelli, Biology professor and Society member
