Year of Science 2009


 The Year of Science 2009 (YoS09) is a national, year-long, grassroots celebration of science shining the spotlight on “How We Know What We Know.” Activities and events are led by a wide variety of scientific organizations under the umbrella of the Coalition on the Public Understanding of Science (COPUS). The scientific community is leveraging the opportunity to increase promotion and engagement of their activities that will improve public understanding of how science works, who scientists are, and why science matters. The 12-month event is organized along the following scientific themes:

􀂾 January – The Process and Nature of Science
􀂾 February – Evolution
􀂾 March – Physics and Technology
􀂾 April – Energy Resources
􀂾 May – Sustainability and the Environment
􀂾 June – Ocean and Water
􀂾 July – Astronomy
􀂾 August – Weather and Climate
􀂾 September – Biodiversity and Conservation
􀂾 October – Geosciences and Planet Earth
􀂾 November – Chemistry
􀂾 December – Science and Health
