About the Grantee:

Science Friday was first broadcast in 1991 as a caller-driven public radio talk show focused on science and directly connecting the public with science. Since then, it has expanded into the ever-changing digital media space and into several realms of education and out-of-school learning. With the mission to increase public access to science and scientific information – Science Friday strives to deliver relevant, understandable science news to people and communities across the country.
