Science Connected is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit producer of fun, engaging, research-based science education resources. We are a global group of scientists and science communicators who are dedicated to increasing public understanding of science and creating free and equal access to science education.

Together we help scientists provide public access to their research findings; translate complex research findings into accessible insights on science, nature, and technology; and facilitate scientific research, communication, and lifelong learning.

Our organization views science as a space for growth, opportunity, community, environmental stewardship, and education. We put this view into practice by creating a collaborative space for researchers, citizen scientists, educators, and science communicators to write about scientific projects that will change our world. And because we also report on the culture and politics surrounding science, we often focus on its human side, offering a place for scientists and community members to tell their stories. In addition to publishing Science Connected Magazine, we produce teaching guides, lab manuals, and paperback anthologies.
