Our members tell us that they reap many rewards from being part of ARCS Foundation Pittsburgh. In addition to the satisfaction of knowing they are contributing to our mission of advancing science in America, they find that the opportunity to interact with experts and scholars in the sciences is a source of intellectual and personal gratification.
Our programs are designed to connect members to the world of science. Small groups experience behind-the-scene tours at science-related facilities and hear speakers on the hottest science topics of the day.
Many events include the scholars, and therefore members have the pleasure of hearing from our nation’s best and brightest. Whether they are talking about tissue regeneration or information security, their passion and commitment inspires us all.
Who can join?
