Keep science a priority with a donation to the Society today.
Science Leaders are scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers, science fair organizers, advocates, artists, parents, and science enthusiasts. They follow in the footsteps of Society for Science & the Public founders Edward W. Scripps, a renowned journalist and entrepreneur, and William Emerson Ritter, a California zoologist. They recognized in 1921 that a well-informed public is essential to the success of our democracy – promoting a greater understanding and appreciation of science and the vital role scientific inquiry plays in human advancement.
