Creating Change Together

Published December 10, 2018

Creating Change Together

It's true in every field: an individual acting alone can only accomplish so much. But when we work together, combining our knowledge and networks, we can accomplish what might otherwise seem impossible.

Founded in 1817, the Academy is among the world’s most enduring scientific institutions precisely because of the combined power and intelligence of our network. And today our mission—to advance scientific research, education, and policy—is more critical than ever. The world faces challenges that can only be solved by science, technology, and teamwork. Please help us continue this crucial work by becoming an Academy Ambassador.

Academy Ambassadors are a committed, active community of STEM students and professionals, reaching thousands of people across the web, and helping spread the word about the importance of STEM education and science-based policies. And they are making a difference!

If you have a passion for science and the desire to do more, join our global community of science advocates.
