Celebrate #GivingTuesday with Us

Be a part of solving some of the major challenges that scientists face by supporting the Academy on #GivingTuesday.

Published November 25, 2014

Celebrate #GivingTuesday with Us

We at the Academy are excited to join the national #GivingTuesday movement. #GivingTuesday is about embracing charitable giving and inspiring others to come together to create extraordinary progress.

You can be part of the solution by supporting the Academy as we address large scale challenges within the sciences: from education to job seeking, filling employment gaps, and supporting cutting edge research.

Learn some of the ways that the Academy's innovative programming helps to address the needs of youth, PhDs and working scientists by watching the video below. And then join in the effort to solve these problems by giving today!

Helping kids understand what it really means to be a scientist today is a major challenge for STEM education. In this video you'll hear about the Academy's innovative Aferschool Mentoring Program from two people who have been a part of it for awhile now: Gavriel (Gavi) Feuer, of the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center's Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation Medicine, and Niklas Manz, in the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center's Henri Begleiter Neurodynamics Laboratory.

Gavi and Niklas have worked together to develop a computer coding curriculum for young people that introduces them to practical skills and basic STEM concepts.

You can be a part of the solution too, by supporting the Academy on #GivingTuesday and beyond. Please give today!
