Partnerships with like-minded donors heighten our ability to achieve a deeper impact both in terms of program quality and inclusivity for those schools serving low-income communities, and those in regions not yet part of our service areas.

Your Donation Makes a Difference

While we don’t know what all the jobs of the future will be, we do know that a vast majority of them will require a solid understanding of STEM and environmental concepts. Our workshops encourage children to get excited about STEM, connect science to their world, dream big, and realize their potential.

As a social enterprise charity, every single one of our 24,800 annual classroom workshops are subsidized by donors, which enables us to keep the cost affordable to the most number of schools.

Funding Priorities:

  • Unrestricted donations are used to subsidize workshop costs, improve and develop workshop content, expand to new regions when resources allow, keep the lights on, and of course, pay the amazing staff and presenters who help to inspire and amaze more than 690,000 inquisitive young minds each year. You can help to ensure a high-quality, high-impact program.
  • Adopt-a-School provides free workshops to schools serving low-income communities. For more information, click here (link to Adopt-a-School page).
