Hello, and thank you for visiting the Massachusetts Academy of Science’s Blogline! My name is Jenna Farrell and I am the Director of Operations here at the MAS. Our mission statement is as follows:
Our Mission is to promote public understanding and appreciation of the sciences, to support scientific research and education in areas relevant to the needs of the state, and to provide consultative or advisory services on matters of science to the Governor, and to local, state, and federal agencies.
Our Motto is:
Think, Explore, Learn!
Please visit our website, www.massacadsciences.org for updates from the world of science and, primarily, science education. Also, check out the page outlining our Second Annual Meeting, and either become a member of the MAS to get FREE admission to the Annual Meeting, or, if you’re already a member, register online! We’ll be hosting our meeting at the Museum of Science, Boston this year!
The MAS hosts a Science Outreach Intern Program each semester here at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. This semester, our interns Bailey, Alex, and Mustapher will be regular contributors to this blog. Please stay with us, as we’d love to keep you informed of where we’ll be appearing next!
