What are the National Academies?
The National Academies are our advisors. They advise the public and the government on issues that affect all of us. Started up by the US Congress in 1863.
- National Academy of Science: scholars who push science and engineering toward use for the general good. Set up in 1863.
- National Academy of Engineering: engineers who encourage education and research. Set up in 1964.
- Institute of Medicine: top professionals who examine policy that affect public health. Set up in 1970.
- National Research Council: scientists and engineers who advance public knowledge of sci/tech. Set up in 1916.
Science is a hammer for change when we use it. Go ahead, use science. Love it. It belongs to all of us. All the National Academies reports are available for free online. Links to the free reports appear here along with all the articles. Science rEvolution is an ad free – no fee site.
People Page – rEvolutionaries a list of people who shook up the view of the world using science and engineering. Looking outside at heaven and earth, or looking inside cells and molecules – these scientists changed the way we see. Add your scientist rEvolutionary in the comments box to grow the list!
Tools Page - here you will find links to sources for facts and ideas from the best minds in science. All points on this map go to publicly funded or nonprofit sites.
