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

1856


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 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 78% from

disadvantaged districts

87% of students

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

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, Nestle´ Purina Petcare, Boeing, Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, the Employees Community strongly Fund of Boeing, Emerson Charitable agree or agree they are Trust, the Saigh Foundation, the Gertrude and William A. Bernoudy capable of having a Foundation, the Mary Ranken Jordan STEM career and Ettie A. Jordan Charitable Foundation, the William R. Orthwein, Jr. and Laura Rand Orthwein Foundation, Maritz, Commerce Bancshares, Inc., the Harry Edison Foundation, the Cady Family Foundation and the Fox Family Foundation.

Teen STEM Careers Laying the STEM Path to the Future

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.


1,200 teens 15 events 97% strongly

100% strongly

Hundreds of middle and high school students from public, private and home schools across the entire St. Louis region experience hands-on, real-world opportunities in 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 relaxed settings, exploring trends such as genomics and nanotechnology.

When I was a younger student I was unsure of my interests and what field to pursue; however, after being introduced to Teen Science Cafe, my eyes were opened. I learned what wonders science and math can do for people and our world, and it hit me--science is for me.

$64,000 in scholarships and awards

High School students who have completed collegiate level research also compete for scholarship awards, and two students represent the Fair at the INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair. Monsanto Fund, SunEdison Semiconductor, and Philpott Family Foundation continue their traditions as strong citizens through support of this high-impact demonstration of scientific learning and discovery.

– continued

1915 – Membership broadens to include teachers, laboratory staff, and college students. 1917 – Library consists of 50,000 volumes.

1923 – A special memorial issue of Transactions is published to honor the outstanding work of Academy member, Dr. Charles Henry Turner, researcher and educator.


Science Fair

Bringing Science Inquiry to Life

1930s-1941 – Academy sponsors work of scientists during the Great Depression—including investigation and collection of artifacts of Native Americans in the Mississippi River Valley. Historical and valuable artifacts became part of the collections of the Academy, the Smithsonian, and the Missouri Resource Museum.

“

BioBlitz is a citizen science inventory of the ecosystems in St. Louis area parks. Teams of 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 collaboration, 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 Cord Moving and Storage.

These hands-on activities inspired a level of student engagement that I have never experienced before. The experts were knowledgeable in their field and eager to share their experience with developing minds.
