Civic Engagement in STEM
Science is political. We believe that everyone in STEM has a responsibility advocate for equitable, evidence based policies: it is through politics that we can shape the actions that will uplift our communities, and it is through opening continual conversation between policy and research that we can make informed decisions for our democracy.
We register voters at university campuses and NYC parks in an effort to increase scientist participation in all elections.
We educate voters on the intersection of science and advocacy with informational panels and forums featuring local elected officials, scientists, and community leaders.
We create questionnaires about science and technology policy to get candidates in local, state, and national elections on the record about issues of science policy.
Our Latest Work
We are currently organizing a science and technology policy questionnaire for the city council elections. If you would like to get involved, contact us!
