Working At Society For Science & The Public
Society for Science & the Public is a great organization dedicated to making science more approachable. Include on any charity websites that solicit contributions, the same information that is recommended for annual reports, as well as the mailing address of the charity and electronic access to its most recent IRS Form 990. Have solicitations and informational materials, distributed by any means, that are accurate, truthful and not misleading, both in whole and in part.
The executive director of the organization frequently has a seat on the board, for instance, and is compensated for being a full time staff member. However, it is rare for a charity to compensate individuals only for serving on its Board of Directors. Although this sort of board compensation is not illegal, it is not considered a best practice. Educators support underrepresented middle and high school students as they choose a project and enter their research in STEM competitions. This unique program pairs educators and other science mentors with a small group of students to help them enter their own science research projects in local and regional fairs, which may lead to students entering our national and international competitions.
The Science Service emerged from a reorganization of a group that Scripps and Ritter had originally founded in 1919 as the American Society for the Dissemination of Science. Help the Society create champions for strong science by informing, educating and inspiring the public. Give more curious, creative young people a chance to launch their own scientific journeys. STEM Action Grants Get information about our grants to innovative organizations and non-profits that promote STEM education.
Under her leadership as Publisher, the Society was able to save its flagship magazine, Science News, an independent source of science journalism since 1921. Ajmera achieved this by creating a new education pillar for the magazine, expanding access of Science News to 5,000 high schools across the country. This process indicates that the organization has a documented policy that it follows year after year. The policy should indicate that an objective and independent review process of the CEO’s compensation has been conducted which includes benchmarking against comparable organizations. We check to be sure that the charity has reported on its Form 990 its process for determining its CEO pay. The general public tends to hold mixed views about the degree to which they believe there is scientific consensus on three hot-button science topics — the “Big Bang” theory, climate change and evolution.
Fully 79% of citizens say that science has made life easier for most people, while just 15% say it has made life more difficult. The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair is the world’Âs largest international pre-college science competition. The Intel ISEF provides an annual forum for more than 1,700 students in grades 9-12 from nearly every state in the U.S. and more than 75 countries, regions and territories to showcase their talent on an international stage. Make available to all, on request, complete annual financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. When total annual gross income exceeds $500,000, these statements should be audited in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards.
