The Washington State Academy of Sciences is the leading source of objective scientific and technological information in Washington State. Top experts, both within and beyond the Academy, participate in our projects and activities to examine and assemble evidence-based findings to address critical issues facing the state. There are two major categories of projects carried out by WSAS – those that are requested of WSAS by the state and those that are initiated by WSAS.
