Resources

The Academy of Science – St. Louis provides numerous opportunities to explore science, technology, engineering and math in the St. Louis area.

If you are visiting our site from outside St. Louis or want even more opportunities to engage in science, we offer a list of our favorite online resources. Take a moment to check out our videos page where we provide recorded videos of our science seminars, in case you missed one or want to relive the excitement.

View the Academy’s research publication, Transactions, a popular scientific journal widely distributed to libraries and research institutions throughout the world from 1856 – 1950s.
