Science! Working for America

APS, in conjunction with the Task Force on American Innovation, designed a sticker emblazoned with the message, “Science! Working for America,” to stress the importance of science funding in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to jumpstart the slumping economy. During the recent groundbreaking of Brookhaven National Laboratory’s National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS), stickers were displayed on the hard hats of dignitaries, including U.S. Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, both of New York. Scientists will use NSLS II, an advanced electron storage ring, to develop clean energy technologies, among other scientific research. The project is expected to create as many as 1,000 jobs during the next several years.
