Congratulations to new AAAS Fellows committed to public engagement with science

AAAS - American Association for the Advancement of Science

Among the new class of AAAS Fellows announced by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) are several individuals affiliated with ASTC members and other committed to public engagement with science. Since 1874, AAAS has been electing Fellows in recognition of diverse accomplishments, including research, leadership, teaching, mentoring, fostering collaborations, and advancing public understanding of science. Election as a AAAS Fellow is a lifetime honor based upon nominations from AAAS’ 24 scientific and engineering sections, three previous Fellows, or by the CEO of AAAS.

We also congratulate one researcher associated with an ASTC-member institution elected as a AAAS Fellow: Ted R. Schultz, Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.

In addition, several other individuals with a long-standing commitment to public engagement with science were also honored as AAAS Fellows:

The 2021 class of AAAS Fellows includes 564 scientists, engineers, and innovators from around the world spanning scientific disciplines. Each will receive an official certificate and a gold and blue rosette pin to commemorate their election (representing science and engineering, respectively) and will be celebrated later this year during an in-person gathering when it is feasible from a public health and safety perspective.
