AIP promotes public awareness, strengthens common bonds


  • Michael Carlowicz


As a member society in the American Institute of Physics (AIP), the AGU shares with nine other societies of physical scientists an interest in deciphering the laws of nature, and a stake in how the laws of the land affect those studies. At a time when scientists are growing more conscious of their role in promoting scientific awareness, AIP is providing AGU members with more vehicles to gather and disseminate information. As the public and, particularly, lawmakers turn to physicists for guidance in developing science policy, the AIP provides its diverse membership with several ways to spread the good news of science.
