Connecting Science & the CommunityŽ The Academy of Science – St. Louis

2014 Report to the Community 2.indd 1

We Believe

• The children we engage in science and technology today are the critical thinkers and problem solvers of the future. • The decisions facing our world require a scientifically literate citizenry, informed by those with expertise in science and technology. • The St. Louis region is a brain trust of researchers, investigators, explorers, and science advocates– dedicated to fostering the next generation of STEM leaders and advocates.

We Know

• That by 8th grade, children children have determined if they have a place in science and technology. By connecting them to STEM professionals who share the rewards of their efforts, we are building the workforce of the future. • That communicating complex science and technology ideas to the public can be effectively accomplished through stories, accessible outreach, and citizen-science opportunities. • That children learn science inquiry through hands-on, relevant, project-based experiences. • That 87% of middle school students, after engaging in Academy career explorations with professionals in science and technology, report a better understanding of why it is important to take math and science; and 74% state that the experience inspired them to want to find out more about future careers in STEM fields.

We Trust

• In the power of collaboration and interdisciplinary ideas and effort. • In an engaged community of advocates of the community outreach initiatives of the Academy of Science. • In the value of a uniquely independent and community-supported organization, true to its 1856 mission, “Promoting the understanding and appreciation of science.”

Our Mission

The Academy seeks to advance the public understanding of science and promote interest in the sciences to students and adults through accessible, year-round seminars and educational initiatives.

72 schools 66% from

disadvantaged districts

88% of students

strongly agree or agree they would like to learn more science and math in school

82% strongly

agree or agree they are capable of having a STEM career

Recent research conducted by the ACT demonstrates that even when students are accomplished in math and science, they do not gravitate toward majors in those areas without a personal connection. Teen STEM Careers provides that connection. STEM professionals work with students in interactive sessions to illustrate the rewards of a fulfilling STEM career.

Supporters of STEM Careers and our continuum of Teen Programs include Express Scripts, Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, the Employees Community Fund of Boeing, Emerson Charitable Trust, the Gertrude and William A. Bernoudy Foundation, Nestle Purina PetCare, the William R. Orthwein, Jr. and Laura Rand Orthwein Foundation, the Mary Ranken Jordan and Ettie A. Jordan Charitable Foundation, Maritz, Commerce Bancshares, Inc., and the Fox Family Foundation.

Teen STEM Careers Laying the STEM Path to the Future

2014 Report to the Community 2.indd 5

1856 – Led by Dr. George Engelmann, the Academy of Science of St. Louis was formed by the key science and education leaders of St. Louis. A state charter was requested and a library and museum were developed. The impressive collection included mounted and preserved specimens of mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish from Charles P. Chouteau.

2/24/15 4:23 PM

850 teens 22 events 93% strongly

Hundreds of middle and high school students from public, private and home schools across the agree or agree they entire St. Louis would like to learn region experience more science and hands-on, real-world opportunities in math in school science, engineering and medicine through Junior Academy. Corporations, science organizations and universities open their labs, research areas and libraries to teens at THE critical time when they are laying the science and technology path for their future. Junior Academy members realize the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to discovery and a strong, early grounding in math and science. Junior Academy offers challenging and engaging science competitions and opportunities for a full range of academic levels. Teen Science Cafes and Science at the Library allow teens to interact with science professionals in fun, informal and relaxed settings exploring trends such as nanotechnology, bionics and The Hunger Games.

Junior Academy is great! I can’t believe all of the scientists I have met! The hands-on experiences in the labswell I never imagined that I would get to be in a real research lab! Meeting teens from across the region is the best! Thank you! Mary N.

BioBlitz is a citizen science f lash inventory of the ecosystems of St. Louis area parks. Teams of public volunteers led by biologists, naturalists and environmental enthusiasts search natural areas, listing as many different species as they can find. BioBlitz produces a timely and relevant snapshot of comparative data.

BioBlitz epitomizes the collaborative mission in pairing scientist team leaders with science advocates of all ages. Participants develop a new appreciation of these very special places. BioBlitz is generously funded in part by Laclede Gas Charitable Trust, Ameren and the Technology Entrepreneur Center.
