National Science Board Honors Maxine Frank Singer With Vannevar Bush Award

rtment of Terrestrial Magnetism.

In 1989, Singer introduced "Project First Light," in which neighborhood 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders attend an imaginative Saturday science school at the Carnegie Institution. In 1994, she initiated the Carnegie Academy for Science Education, which includes six-week summertime institutes for elementary school teachers, along with continuing associations throughout the school year.

Singer also serves on several boards of directors, including Johnson & Johnson. In 1992, she received the National Medal of Science from President Bush for her "outstanding scientific accomplishments and her deep concern for the societal responsibility of the scientist."

The NSB established the Vannevar Bush Award in 1980 to commemorate NSF's 30th anniversary. It was Vannevar Bush who, at the request of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, recommended in 1945 that a foundation be established by Congress to serve as a focal point for the federal government's support and encouragement of research and education in science and technology, and for the development of a national science policy. Five years later, Congress passed a bill creating the NSF.

Singer will receive the Bush Award on May 5 in Washington, D.C. at a National Science Board awards ceremony.
