AAAS members marched to promote the value of science. Join the movement.

This April, AAAS members came together with thousands of scientists and supporters in the March for Science to advocate for the importance of scientific progress and evidence-based policies. There’s never been a better time for you to get involved and make a difference.

That’s why you should join AAAS. We’ve been the home for scientists and science supporters since 1848. Today we’re the world’s largest general scientific society—a community that cares about curiosity, evidence, and discovery. For as little as $50, you can become a member of AAAS, helping to support the advancement of science and technology at this crucial moment in time.

Join AAAS now and get your “Force for Science” T-shirt to show your science pride. You’ll also receive your choice of the print or digital edition of Science magazine for an entire year.

Your membership supports AAAS initiatives across the country and all over the world, including:

  • Expanding the public dialogue about the science-based challenges shaping our world today
  • Leading the charge to ensure the proper use of scientific evidence in decision-making and policymaking
  • Bringing scientists, policymakers, and the general public together through one-of-a-kind events and workshops
  • Inspiring the next generation by placing retired scientists in K–12 classrooms across the nation
  • Collaborating with dozens of scientific societies to urge Congress to reject policies that disregard science
