As President Obama recently said, it is important that we "win the race to educate our kids...not just the winner of the super bowl celebrated- but those who win in the science fair".  EIC is working on the advocacy of science, engineering and technology along with the rest of the nation. 


This S.E.T. campaign is part of a larger EIC initiative, in collaboration with The Boeing Company, to promote these career areas.The program provides the entertainment industry with free access to experts in the fields of science, engineering, and technology to utilize as resources for scriptwriting and character design.


First Draft for "Ready on the S.E.T. and...Action!" is a service that links YOU, the creative community, to science, engineering and technology experts during the development and production of entertainment content.

Pauley's Message to Help  

Involve Girls in Engineering


Pauley believes that young people "don't have a lot of role models in science, engineering and technology", which is why she has joined with EIC to help spread the importance of these career fields. Pauley's character Abby Sciuto, on the CBS hit show NCIS, has an energetic, strong personality with a great interest in science--traits very similar to Pauley's. Abby is known for being a successful female advocate for forensic scientists throughout the show.

"I am the Energizer bunny  

of forensic science: I never sleep and I never give up."
