The Science History Institute is proud to announce that has been named a 2024 Webby Honoree in the 28th Annual Webby Awards in the science category. Hailed as the “internet’s highest honor” by the New York Times, the Webby Awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, the leading awards organization honoring excellence on the internet.

“Honorees like the Science History Institute are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the internet,” said Claire Graves, president of the Webby Awards. “It’s an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the 13,000 projects we reviewed this year.”

With a major redesign that launched in June 2023, features user-friendly navigation and a vibrant look and feel that reflects our recent brand refresh. You’ll also find lots of new content, including Stories by Topic, Awards Program, and Projects & Initiatives pages; reimagined Visit, Education, and Support sections; and a Stories landing page featuring our Distillations magazine, Distillations podcast, and The Disappearing Spoon podcast.

We share this prestigious honor with our partners at Zivtech, the Philadelphia-based design and development agency that worked so diligently with us throughout the yearlong redesign.

About the Webby Awards

Established in 1996 during the internet’s infancy, the Webby Awards are presented annually by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), a 3000+ member judging body. IADAS membership includes leading internet experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries, and creative celebrities, as well as former Webby winners, nominees, and other internet professionals.

Reflecting the tremendous growth of the internet, the Webbys now honor excellence in nine major media platforms: Websites & Mobile Sites; Video; Advertising; Media & PR; Apps & Software; Social; Podcasts; Games; and AI, Metaverse & Virtual. In addition to Webby Honorees, there are two awards in each category under each platform: the Webby Award and the Webby People’s Voice Award, which is open to the voting public.
