Summer STEM Reading

For many people, things slow down a little bit during the summer, leaving a bit more time for reading. We thought we'd share just a taste of some of the great Academy content on offer for people to take in while relaxing, traveling, or enjoying a lazy summer morning or afternoon.

As a reminder, here are some hashtags you can include in your posts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or other preferred social media channels:

  • #IAmNYAS - When sharing your own or other Academy Members' stories.
  • #Imagine300 - For posts focused on the future of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)
  • #STEMRoleModels or #ScienceHeroes - For mentors, role models, leaders in their field (past and present), and people of all ages doing inspiring work in STEM.
  • #FutureofSTEM - For posts focused on young people in STEM.

Note about images: The images included here are only for use by Ambassadors for posts related to the Academy and its programs. Please do not share, use, or otherwise distribute any of these images for any other purpose.
