Science needs help.

Recent studies have shown a growing public distrust in scientists and their research. Federal funding is being slashed under greater scrutiny and politically motivated misinformation. The long-ingrained "publish or perish" model is making it harder for scientists to build support for their research and provide broader impact.

We make a broader impact for science.

We need to invest in creating a network of public science education experiences that seamlessly incorporate learning opportunities in and out of school ... we must work towards creating a new ‘public science education,’ one that fully accommodates all available times, spaces, and ways to learn.
