A bipartisan group of lawmakers have introduced legislation to create the position of Science Laureate for the United States. The bill would allow the President to appoint up to three Science Laureates to engage the public and increase public awareness of science. Appointments would be made on the basis of an individual’s scientific contributions and ability to foster public interest in science.
If you support the establishment of a Science Laureate, you can send a letter to your Representative and Senators asking them to co-sponsor the Science Laureates of the United States Act of 2013.
