Explore our 2013 "Perspectives" annual report to see all that we’ve accomplished in the past year—and where we're headed next.
Each year, nearly 700 middle- and high-school students participate in one of the Academy’s outside-of-school programs. For volunteers in the Teen Advocates for Science Communication program, the goal is to find creative ways to share science with Academy visitors. Their methods? Flash mobs and specimen-inspired fashion shows, among other creative approaches. Whether they're joining an after-school Science Action club at one of ten local middle schools, or working with digital media to tell science stories in our Science in Action high-school program, these students are choosing to immerse themselves in science during their free time. What better way to cultivate a more science-literate society?
