Unlocking the Secrets of Science

What is the mission of the National Science Foundation (NSF)? This nine-page document released by the NSF in April 2013 provides an elegant and thoughtful answer to this query. As the first page notes, "We support all fields of fundamental science and engineering, keeping our nation's scientific enterprise focused on the furthest frontiers of research." The piece goes on to talk about the NSF's methods, the projects it funds, and some of its recent successes. These successes include safer sutures, 3-D printing, and barcodes. Journalists and others will enjoy the "NSF at a Glance" section, as it provides information on the foundation's competitive awards, support for basic research, and facts and figures on its average grants and proposals.
