Milwaukee Area Science Advocates
The Milwaukee Area Science Advocates (MASA) champion science as a pillar of freedom and prosperity, and we call upon policy makers and politicians to enact evidence-based policies for the common good of Milwaukee citizens.
Who We AreMASA champions science as a pillar of freedom & prosperity, and we call upon policy makers and politicians to enact evidence-based policies for the common good of Milwaukee. Our objective is to increase community engagement in Science Education, Public Health, and Sustainability.
What We Do- Engage with education institutions for the coordination of science-related events and workshops for children and adults. - Provide science-related media content in an easy-to-digest format to promote greater science literacy and understanding. - Support local Milwaukee organizations by promoting their science and community events, and sharing spaces and ideas to engage a wider audience. - Inform the Milwaukee community about public policy and legislation impacting the community relating to Science Education, Public Health, and Sustainability.
Why It MattersIn today’s world it is becoming alarming how many people deny proven scientific facts. MASA exists to counter these anti-science sentiments. Science at its core is about understanding the reality we live in to its fullest. What good is this knowledge if we as individuals and as a society don’t act on it or have the tools to understand what the data means? MASA is about advocating for quality science education in our community and beyond. It is about strong investment into scientific research both for improving our well-being and the new technology that arises through scientific discoveries.
