The American Institute of Biological Sciences is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) scientific association dedicated to advancing biological research and education for the welfare of society. AIBS works to ensure that the public, legislators, funders, and the community of biologists have access to and use information that will guide them in making informed decisions about matters that require biological knowledge.
The American Institute of Physics, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, advances, promotes and serves the physical sciences for the benefit of humanity.
We are committed to the preservation of physics for future generations, the success of physics students both in the classroom and professionally, and the promotion of a more scientifically literate society.
Its growing membership has led to Councils in Europe, India, and China, fostering networking opportunities that strengthen ties within and across countries and technical communities. Their actions enhance ACM’s ability to raise awareness of computing’s important technical, educational, and social issues around the world.
Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS)
AESS provides identity, collective voice and continuing education for individuals in higher education engaged in environmental research, teaching, problem solving, and service to society. The Association promotes the development of these collective concerns by promoting research, discussion, and outreach that expand public knowledge about the environment and improve environmental science, policy, and management.
International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB)
We promote the general understanding and appreciation of mathematics. We encourage students of all ages, particularly those from underrepresented groups, to pursue activities and careers in the mathematical sciences.
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)
-Teaching and Learning: NCTM provides support for research-informed teaching that ensures the learning of each and every student in equitable environments.
-Access, Equity and Empowerment: NCTM advances a culture of equity where each and every person has access to high quality teaching and is empowered as a learner and doer of mathematics.
-Advocacy: NCTM engages in advocacy to focus, raise awareness, and influence decision makers and the public on issues concerning teachers of mathematics and high-quality mathematics teaching and learning.
The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), founded in 1944 and headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, is the largest organization in the world committed to promoting excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning for all.
We want everyone to experience the excitement and value of the chemical sciences. Our members and supporters reach out to connect people - from schoolchildren to scientists to political leaders - with chemistry.
