Minnesota Academy of Science

The Minnesota Academy of Science, a statewide 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has been promoting science in Minnesota since 1873. It is dedicated to providing opportunities for Minnesotans of all backgrounds to engage in STEM-related learning, inquiry, research, and networking. Programs include the State Science & Engineering Fair, the Minnesota Science Bowls as part of the National Science Bowl, and the mentoring/hands-on learning program FORSE: Fostering Opportunities & Relationships in STEM Education. The Academy created the Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve in 1940, a large ecological research site in central Minnesota with natural habitats that represent the entire state. Its scientific meetings, starting in 1873, have been a critical means of communicating scientific developments across the state; those research papers are available in the Journal of the Minnesota Academy of Science.
