Three decades of successful experience has shown that the most
effective, feasible and practical way to provide quality, inspirational,
science experiences to under-served students and families is through our
, which reach 20,000 elementary kids and their
families at schools in 17 counties. These programs include popular
day-time, in-class science topics as well as our unique "Family Science
Nights" that fill multipurpose rooms with exciting hands on activities
on science ("Science in Your World") and our newly developed
environmentally oriented "Green World Healthy People" evening program.
To sustain the positive impacts of those programs, and to continue
providing young children (and families!) with critically important
STEM-related experiences, our aging "workhorse" (but 17 years old!)
cargo-type vans need replacing now!
Our goal is to raise $40,000, which
will provide one replacement vehicle critically needed to maintain
hands-on science programs at schools in northern California.
is very proud of our ability and capacity to "go where the kids and
teachers need us"! Help us continue this most important and effective
avenue for STEM-related discovery and learning! (We'd love to expand
our "hybrid" fleet as well.
Since many programs are 50-100 miles away,
most e-vehicles don't have the range and cargo space.) We'd be happy
to work with a major car/truck dealer to accomplish this goal as well.
In the next two months, we're working to secure matching funds of at
least $10,000 to help secure the total funds we need.
Help us continue
to succeed in giving kids the inspiration and opportunities they need
to succeed in their educational careers and develop much needed critical
