August 2019 Ambassador Posts
Innovation is something that takes time and effort, and often relies on teams working together to sort through a variety of challenges. It's a process that requires commitment and determination from many different individuals. This month we're celebrating the people who stick with it and who hold the potential to change our world for the better.

Early August Posts
Post 1 - Award-Winning Scientists
What do an Antarctic penguin researcher, a theoretical physicist, and a chemical biologist have in common? These three are all 2019 @BlavatnikAwards National Laureates! Congrats to all three of these amazing scientists. #STEMHorizons https://bit.nyas.org/2GrckFF
Post 2 - Send Darwin to Space
Darwin in space? Seems farfetched, but you could help get @NYASciences (where Darwin's likeness resides), @shaka_lulu, @marsgirl42, and @mason_lab to #SXSW, where they'll be discussing bringing human civilization to space. #STEMHorizons https://bit.nyas.org/2OuL2ER
Post 3 - Citizen Science
From gathering data about local wildlife to measuring climate data, there's an enormous amount that anyone can do to contribute to cutting-edge science. @NYASciences explains how you can participate in #citizenscience projects. #STEMHorizons https://bit.nyas.org/2JWFKxi
Post 1 - Inspiration as Motivation
Figuring out which career to pursue is challenging for young people. This @NYASciences Young Member got some help from her mentor and peers. Find out how. #FutureofSTEM https://bit.nyas.org/315Cbut
Post 2 - Natural Language
Most of us have experienced it - you try to call or chat online with customer service and get an automated responder that doesn't understand what you're saying. Find out how #AI researchers like @YejinChoinka are changing this. #STEMHorizons. https://bit.nyas.org/2ynDqJo
Post 3 - Tackling a Serious Challenge
Being able to quickly and effectively respond to natural disasters is more important than ever. These @NYASciences Young Members took on the challenge, prototyping an app that could help survivors better cope in the aftermath. #FutureofSTEM https://bit.nyas.org/2YjEwVZ
