“Science is not a belief system; it is, instead, a very special way of learning about the true nature of the observable world.”  Bruce Alberts, former President of the National Academy of Sciences, Science, 3/31/17

The Washington State Academy of Sciences (WSAS) is dedicated to using science in the service of Washington State. Analogous to the National Academies’ role at the national level, WSAS is committed to advising our executive and legislative branches about the many ways the progress of science and engineering can impact policy and law for the betterment of Washington State. The impacts of the National Academies’ advising at the national level for 154 years are captured in this compelling video. Here in Washington, we’re just getting started.
