Students for Science empowers young people to engage with and advocate for science in the public and private sectors.
Hello Future Scientists!
Are you interested in an opportunity to engage in the growing intersection of STEM and politics in your community? Ready to educate your peers on the importance of science-based policy in this tense political climate? As a continuation of our work with the March for Science, the Students for Science have created a club for education, engagement, and advocacy to raise awareness for STEM at a grassroots level.
Through chapters in different high schools around the world, our goal is to reach as many students as possible who are eager to learn about and support science.
Club activities will include:
Inviting local leaders or scientists to your school to discuss their roles and their work in the STEM fields
Discussing scientific topics and policies with your peers
Advocating for STEM-based education in your local school board meetings
Educating your school and region on various STEM topics, like climate change and the reproducibility crisis
Participating in nationwide actions and contests for club members
Engaging with local and national government representatives
Now more than ever, we need your support to fight for the necessity of science education! We would love for you to join us in our endeavours while helping your local community. If you are interested in this opportunity, please fill out this form to register your club and we will be in touch with materials for meetings.
Created by students, for students, the Students for Science club will bring together high school students, teachers, and scientific experts in regular meetings with an available, flexible curriculum. Through after school programs, the club will promote student engagement in science and increased science literacy. Through its link with the March for Science organization, club organizers will be able to match with local scientists and experts for lessons, workshops, and talks.
In the club, high school students will gain a greater understanding of the connections between science, society, and policy. Today's high school students will be voters in the 2020 elections and we want to empower fellow students to play a powerful role in the future of policy. After-school programs will include discussions of current issues around science in policy and encourage students to reach out to their representatives to make their voices heard. Through science education we can create a new generation of science advocates. Learn More
