National Science Foundation Logo

National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation (NSF), established in 1950, is the federal government's only agency dedicated to the support of education and fundamental research in all scientific and engineering disciplines. Its purpose is to ensure that the United States maintains leadership in discovery, learning and innovation across science, mathematics and engineering. NSF has achieved this purpose repeatedly over the past 50 years. Important discoveries and education opportunities have come about with assistance from the National Science Foundation. In its role of funding and encouraging fundamental research and education, the National Science Foundation has given seeds of important ideas a chance to grow.

The funding for Science in Everyday Experiences was provided by National Science Foundation Grant #ESI 01-04555.


Delta Research and Educational Foundation
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., established the Delta Research and Educational Foundation (DREF), a nonprofit corporation. DREF was designed to help strengthen and expand the charitable, educational, scientific programs of Delta Sigma Theta and other organizations with similar community service goals.

DREF's mission is to (1) promote research that is pivotal in resolving critical issues affecting African-American women and their families, both nationally and globally; (2) grant funds to organizations whose initiatives are consistent with Delta's pgrammatic thrust; and (3) serve as a conduit for charitable contributions to public service and scholarship programs.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority
The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority was founded on January 13, 1913, by twenty-two Howard University women who wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need. Since its establishment, Delta Sigma Theta has clearly established itself as a public service organization that strives to confront the problems of African Americans and, hence, all Americans. A wide range of programs addressing education, health, international development, and strengthening of the African American family have emerged and evolved over the years. In realizing its mission, Delta Sigma Theta provides an extensive array of public service through its Five-Point Program Thrust of Physical and Mental Health, Educational Development, Economic Development, International Awareness and Involvement, and Political Awareness and Involvement.


The American Association for the Advancement of Science
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is the world's largest general scientific organization, and publisher of the peer-reviewed journal Science. Founded in 1848 to represent all disciplines of science, AAAS supports scientific exchange and discussion of science and society issues. With more than 138,000 members and 275 affiliated societies, AAAS serves as an authoritative source for information on the latest developments in science and bridges gaps among scientists, policy-makers and the public to advance science and science education.

The Science in Everyday Experiences project is managed by the AAAS Directorate for Education and Human Resources Programs.
