Society for Science & the Public

Society for Science & the Public (Society) is a champion for science, dedicated to expanding scientific literacy, effective STEM education and scientific research. We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) membership organization focused on promoting the understanding and appreciation of science and the vital role it plays in human advancement: to inform, educate, and inspire.
 
Since 1921, the Society (formerly known as Science Service) has conveyed the excitement of science and research directly to the public through our award-winning publications and later through our world-class science education competitions.
 
Today, the Society is dedicated to providing concise, accurate, and inspirational science news and opportunities to our nearly 100,000 subscribing members, the 50,000 alumni of our competitions worldwide, and millions of unique online visitors and social media followers.
