2018 Academy Ambassadors Welcome

Thank you for being a 2018 New York Academy of Sciences Ambassador!

You are part of a committed community of active STEM students and professionals reaching tens of thousands of people across the web to spread the word about the importance of supporting STEM education and science-based policies.

With your support, we will continue to raise awareness of the importance of scientific literacy and STEM education around the world.

Here's how to participate in the 2018 Academy Ambassadors Program:

  • Follow the Academy on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
  • Check the monthly content page linked below for specific social media post suggestions.

    • Other suggested content gives you the chance to personalize the content by adding your own thoughts and images.
  • Create and post your own content in support of STEM literacy.
    • Images help your content reach more people and helps grow your following - make sure to use them whenever possible.
    • Include Academy hashtags, such as #IAmNYAS or #Imagine300, so that we can see your posts. This also makes it easier for us to like and possibly share your posts!
  • Share and re-post the content from the Academy that you find inspiring and informative.

The Academy’s mission is focused on advancing scientific research, education, and policy.
