Join the Force for Science


Wherever you find scientists, engineers, and advocates, you’ll find the American Association for the Advancement of Science—at the March for Science and all over the country, 365 days a year.

For more than 170 years, we have been creating a community for science and science supporters, and protecting science for the benefit of all. Today, we’re defending science’s place in our schools, in public policy, and in our national conversation about the future of our planet. All we need is you to help us be heard.

Become a member of AAAS for as little as $50.

Limited-time offer: Join AAAS by May 31, 2018, and we'll send you a limited-edition "Force for Science" T-shirt as a thank-you!
