Science News by AAAS.
Science News is a digital product designed for science lovers to stay up to date in the field.
AAAS turned to Apollo Matrix to design and build Science News, a replacement for their existing reader app. Science News is an application that best serves their mission of “advancing science, engineering and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all people”.
The American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS), is an international non-profit organization dedicated to advancing science around the world. AAAS serves as an educator, leader, spokesperson, and professional organization. In addition to organizing membership activities, AAAS publishes the journal Science, scientific newsletters, books and reports.

The app also features a Career News page and searchable Job board.
