Who is this year's unsung hero?!
Every year we honor a person, like our friend Paul Shin, who stands out because he/she loves science so much it comes across to everyone with whom they interact. Intended to recognize an “unsung hero”, award recipients do not need to be professionals in the scientific field (though they might be!) — they just need to exemplify a unique passion in sharing science.
Planning is underway for the COPUS 2015 Unconference — a unique, experiential, and refreshing gathering of people that love science! Planned to be the most diverse conversation yet, we strive to meet and reach people whom we have never met before.
Our Guiding Principles:
Building Community. Promoting a set of key messages. Celebrating science in our lives.
Specific goals for 2015 are to:
By the end of 2015, we strive to create a coordinated and collective effort among 500 organizations in order to promote key messages about the nature of science.
Together with those 500 organizations, we will reach 1,000,000 people to share How Science Works, Why Science Matters, and What Scientists Do in a way that will improve each individual’s understanding of science as a human endeavor.
COPUS will expand the opportunities to communicate science by building a corps group of up to 100 individuals who will come together and learn from the experiences and perspectives that have shaped each individual’s point of view.
