The Nebraska Academy of Sciences is the oldest scientific organization in the state of Nebraska and was formed to encourage the exchange of scientific data and to improve the communication between the various disciplines of scientific research in the different educational institutions. Those were the goals a century ago. Today they are basically the same:

To promote the utilization of scientific talent in the State of Nebraska in cooperation with local, state, federal, and private organizations in addressing all problems of the environment as they relate to science, and,

To dedicate its collective and individual talents to promoting the best possible education for young people, and to instilling in them awareness of the relationship of science, technology, and the changing environment.
