 AAAS - History and Archives
Geology was central to the development of American science in the early to mid-19th century as Americans explored the continent and its natural resources.
The founders of the American Society of Geologists (which was founded in 1840 and became the American Society of Geologists and Naturalists in 1842) spent several years discussing the notion of expanding their organization into an association for the promotion of all fields of science.
The Association was revived under the leadership of Frederick A. Barnard, president of Columbia University, and it met again in Buffalo, New York, in 1866.

 Address Before the American Association for the Advancement of Science. September 13, 1948
American scientists must, like all the rest of our citizens, devote a part of their strength and skill to keeping the Nation strong.
All Americans have a solemn obligation to avoid those methods and procedures which are impeding scientific research-whether adopted mistakenly with good intent, or advocated in the name of security by men with other axes to grind.
But the social sciences and related fields are at least as important in the present stage of human affairs.

Be it resolved that the American Association of Physical Anthropologists strongly endorses the recent resolution of the American Association for the Advancement of Science condemning the concepts of and teaching of, at public expense, so-called scientific creationism.
Science teachers are already free to mention or discuss creationism in the classroom if they wish, so long as they do not materially compromise the educational objective of the schools to cover the major areas of scientific information.
The history of science helps us understand scientific processes and is important for informing the way that science is used publicly, for example, in the courts and in the development of educational standards in those states and countries that have chosen to develop such standards for their public schools.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science's Project 2061 created Benchmarks for Science Literacy (AAAS, 1993) as a tool for curriculum design.
The developers sought to establish benchmarks for science learning for all students, to define what they should know and be able to do in science, mathematics, and technology.
Rather, they are meant to enlighten and inform the decisions of teachers and curriculum developers as they determine the substance of instruction and choose the methods by which it is presented.
