Over the past year, SSP has begun to invite alumni, subscribers, and friends to join the Society, and hundreds of individuals have answered the call. Membership in SSP represents participation in a network of science-minded individuals who champion the public engagement in science. This helps advance the role of science, inspire future innovators, and ensure public understanding and support for science.
Meet some of SSP’s first members:
We hope you will join them and the hundreds of other SSP members, if you have not already. As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) membership organization, the Society relies on the support of people who understand the vital role of science and science education in today’s society.
Susan Vincent, a 2009 SSP Fellow, doesn’t take a summer break from teaching the students at the Young Women’s Leadership Institute in New York City. Instead, she spends her vacation trudging through knee-deep water and mud so thick it is possible to get stuck. This summer she regularly took several of her students, as well as some boys from a nearby school, to Piermont Marsh to take water samples. The marsh is in poor condition and has been taken over by an opportunistic plant, Phragmites, which now covers 75% of the marsh vegetation. Susan’s group is studying how fast it is invading and what it means for animal life.
