GotScience has always been part of the nonprofit organization Science Connected, and it’s time to fully bring the two projects together. Beginning July 1, GotScience Magazine will become Science Connected Magazine!
Our mission at Science Connected has always been to produce honest, engaging, and available science communication and literature about science for educators and lifelong learners, written by scientists and science communicators.
We do this 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 the magazine, Science Connected creates teaching guides, lab manuals, and paperback anthologies.
The magazine gives us an opportunity to mentor science writers, offer a platform to researchers, and discuss science policy and activism. Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to develop better resources customized to the needs of our community and education partners. We’ve even partnered with amazing groups including SciStarter and the Biota Project to bring you articles about science with a focus on community, in support of educating ourselves and others on climate change, pollution, energy sources, and more.
The organization as a whole views science as a space for growth, opportunity, community, environmental stewardship, and education—these themes tie all of our projects together.
We’re unifying our brand name, but we’re still the same organization and publication you know, with the same mission to bring science to everyone. So look forward to more articles and more resources!
