The Science Connected policy of non-discrimination
Science Connected is committed to celebrating diversity as well as equal employment and volunteer opportunity without regard to age, ancestry, disability, national or ethnic origin, race, religious belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, political belief, or veteran status.

What is Science Connected?
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.
At Science Connected, we work with scientists and educators to provide children with the scientific knowledge that will help employ them, help them become the citizens, leaders, and innovators of tomorrow. But that’s not all. We also work with researchers, journalists, universities, and industry leaders to provide cutting-edge research findings to people of all ages who continue to change our world for the better.
