The Governor's Science Advisory Council origi-
nated as the Governor's Science Resources Advi-
sory Council in 1963. By Executive Order, the
Governor reorganized the Council in 1970 as the
Governor's Science Advisory Council.
The Council provides the Governor with objective
scientific and technological advice. The Council iden-
tifies potential problems in all fields to which scientific
approaches can be applied, formulates recommenda-
tions to alleviate these problems, and defines problem
areas for which committees could find solutions or
recommendations for action. The Council also defines
scientific areas needing additional research or data
analysis, reviews available resources to perform such
analysis, and recommends the approach to be used.
The Council further works to improve scientific edu-
cation and identifies areas for graduate studies that will
be of value to the State.
At the Governor's request or with the Governor's
approval, the Council provides scientific and techno-
logical advice to the principal executive departments
of State government. It also serves as a liaison with
scientists of other states or agencies in coordinating
approaches to common scientific problems.
Appointed by the Governor, Council members
serve three-year terms.

The Maryland Science Week Commission was
created by the Governor in February 1992 (Execu-
tive Order 01.01.1992.04). The Commission or-
ganizes and oversees a week-long series of events by
which Maryland annually observes Maryland Sci-
ence Week. The Week coincides with National Sci-
ence and Technology Week, designated by the
National Science Foundation.
Held in April, Maryland Science Week draws
attention to the importance of science and technol-

the Week also are designed to inspire students to
pursue careers in science and technology.
The Commission consists of thirty members ap-
pointed to three-year terms by the Governor.
