Speak Up for Science with a Photo!

As scientists, BPS members know about all the great reasons to fund basic research:  it is the bedrock of our future cures, economic growth, and a better quality of living.  Unfortunately, many members of the public do not realize this and wonder why public agencies should be spending money for researchers to ‘tinker’ in the lab.

The Society is constantly working on ways to communicate the value of science to the public (and Congress). Today we are asking for your help. Print the FundScience sign, fill in why you support funding for science, and snap a photo with your sign.  Share it via social media with the hashtags #FUNDSCIENCE and #BPS15.

If you are at the BPS Annual Meeting, you can find instructions and supplies to make your sign in the Charles Street Lobby near the Society Booth.

We look forward to learning about your great reason to #FUNDSCIENCE!
