Presentations by Elizabeth DiGangi, SUNY Binghamton; Annette Lee, St. Cloud State University; and Fatimah Jackson, Howard University at Indiana University on April 1, 2019.

The real-world expertise of scientists and engineers volunteering in elementary, middle and high school classrooms is more important than ever — a role that the AAAS STEM Volunteer Program is filling as it celebrates its 15th anniversary.

AAAS has been awarded a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to further efforts of higher education institutions to advance diversity, equity and inclusion across STEM programs.

The AAAS Annual Meeting 2019 teemed with news, learning and sharing – as well as Science & Technology Policy Fellows. Thousands of scientists, engineers, educators, policymakers and journalists from around the world convened in Washington on February 14-17 around the theme of “Science Transcending Boundaries.”

This past fall, the U.S. Census Bureau became the newest agency to host a AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellow (STPF) when it took on a data science researcher.

This guide features sessions led by STPF fellows and/or related to science in policy and science communication. STPF looks forward to seeing you at the AAAS Annual Meeting!

AAAS Family Science Days is a free public science event that offers an array of hands-on child-friendly activities. The 2019 AAAS Family Science Days event will be held Saturday, February 16, and Sunday, February 17, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, DC.

Since Halloween is celebrated at the end of this month, we thought it would be fitting to use our Read-Around-A-Theme to take a look at spooky science. From vampire bats to monster science to the holiday of Halloween itself, the selection of books, websites, and facts will help young and older readers alike learn more about the things that go bump in the night!
