- Science Friday, provided in part by the National Science Foundation and the Sloan Foundation “is a weekly science talk show, broadcast live over public radio stations nationwide from 2-4 pm Eastern time as part of NPR’s ‘Talk of the Nation’ programming. Each week, we focus on science topics that are in the news and try to bring an educated, balanced discussion to bear on the scientific issues at hand. Panels of expert guests join Science Friday’s host, Ira Flatow, a veteran science journalist, to discuss science – and to take questions from listeners during the call-in portion of the program.”

- Colorado Cafe Scientifique in Denver
- “The Cafe Scientifique idea started in England a few years ago, based on the French Cafe Philosophique. In the Cafe Scientifique, people (often science buffs) come together in a friendly pub after work and hear an informal introduction to an interesting current scientific topic, led by an expert. We take a short break for refreshments, to meet new people, and chat, and then we return for questions and answers and general discussion. All questions and comments are welcome, as this isn’t a seminar, it’s a chance for all of us to express an opinion, expert or otherwise.”
- Cafe Scientifique, Great Britain
- Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context. Cafe Scientifique is a forum for debating science issues, not a shop window for science. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable.
- Science On Tap, Seattle, WA — “A place to eat, drink, and talk about science”.
- Science on Tap is a place where anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology in a relaxed atmosphere. A forum for discussing science issues with local scientists, Science on Tap is based on Cafe Scientifique. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accessible.

- The Design Science Lab develops solutions to global and local problems. It does this through a design and planning methodology often referred to as design science. This methodology is inspired by the work of R. Buckminster Fuller, the late 20th century inventor, philosopher, and designer. At its core, the Design Science Lab recognizes the profound contribution ‘ordinary’ citizens can make toward solving our most pressing local, regional and global problems. It engages participants in the development of real-world solutions to the major challenges facing the planet. Using present day technology and known resources, participants develop affordable solutions to local, regional, and global problems. Through direct experience, participants come to understand that individual initiative can and indeed must make a difference in creating a better world.

- The Science Olympiad
The Science Olympiad is an international nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. These goals are accomplished through classroom activities, research, training workshops and the encouragement of intramural, district, regional, state and national tournaments. The Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of individual and team events which students prepare for during the year. The competitions follow the format of popular board games, TV shows and athletic games. These challenging and motivational events are well balanced between the various science disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers and technology. There is also a balance between events requiring knowledge of science facts, concepts, processes, skills and science applications.

- Science in Cinema – Training
The Catalyst Workshop was created to address this problem, one of the most significant issues facing our nation: the need to engage society (especially young people) in the activity of science.
The need for Hollywood to produce pictures with “better science” has been pointed out in many forums. However, in order to accomplish the goal of producing scripts with better science stories, an increase in the number of science-literate writers is necessary. In 2004, the American Film Institute offered the first Catalyst Workshop.
- NOAA Weather Camp
Kick-off of “WeatherCamp.” Now up and running at the NOAA Center for Atmospheric Sciences at Howard University in Washington, DC, the annual camp gives high school students a chance to delve into the wonders of atmospheric science and related fields. Co-sponsored by the NOAA Educational Partnership Program, the camp provides insight into areas such as meteorology, physics, environmental science, and applied physical sciences. Field trips to NOAA, NASA and other science sites are part of the experience. (from NOAA Administrator Conrad Lautenbacher)

Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons.
