Meet the Scientists

Help Us Celebrate #ThankAScientist Week!

November 26-30, 2018 

During #ThankAScientist week, AERA, along with other scientific organizations and several universities, encourages Twitter users to reach out and thank scientists from all fields for the research they produce and how they have positively impacted our society. 

AERA has highlighted a select group of education researchers and the work that they do. These scholars represent a range of high-quality education research being produced by the field and actively use Twitter to connect research and knowledge to societal issues. Take a moment this week to tweet and show your appreciation to these scientists and other members of the field for the contributions they have made to education research.

Make sure to use the hashtag #ThankAScientist in your appreciation tweets and follow AERA on Twitter to see highlights from this special week!
