A major shout out to Mark and Guerilla Science from the American Association for the Advancement of Science! 

Mark has received the society’s 2015 Early Career Award for Public Engagement with Science for his guerilla methods of public engagement. Officially, for “his broad range of creative and sustainable public engagement strategies that target audiences who may not be actively seeking science information.” Read more about how awesome the AAAS think Mark and Guerilla Science are here.

The prestigious award was established in 2010 to recognize “early-career scientists and engineers who demonstrate excellence in their contribution to public engagement with science activities.” A monetary prize of $5,000, a commemorative plaque, complimentary registration to the AAAS Annual Meeting, and reimbursement for reasonable travel and hotel expenses to attend the AAAS Annual Meeting to receive the prize are given to the recipient.

The honor was bestowed upon Mark during the 182nd AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., 11-15 February 2016. Well done!
