Science and the presidential election

Members of the scientific community likely have concerns that should be important to all U.S. citizens as the election nears. The American Association for the Advancement of Science has created a guide for Science and Technology in the Presidential Election. Each of the major party candidates, as well as some lesser known candidates and former candidates, are profiled, using their campaign Web sites and other news sources as noted. Issues are covered in xx categories:

  • Competitiveness and Innovation
  • STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) Education and Workforce
  • Better Health for Americans
  • Energy and Environment
  • National and Homeland Security
Full-text reports are available as well as links to relevant news stories. In addition, this guide is a portal to additional resources provided by a number of organizations.
