Give Kids Access to Science!
COVID-19 has brought a 25% cut in program funding, but the need for science support is as great as ever. As we launch this school year's program remotely to 2,600 disadvantaged youth, please consider a tax-deductible gift to help ensure all kids have an equal chance at the STEM careers of their future.
PS Science enables underserved children and their teachers in Title I schools to:
1See beauty, wonder, and infinite opportunity.
2Do science through active exploration and collaboration.
3Know the joy of discovery and the power of knowledge.
2019-20 School Year Objectives:
- Approximately 2,200 students at ten Title I elementary schools will participate in hands-on science education that would not otherwise be offered.
- Each participating student will have access to 90 minutes weekly of age-appropriate STEM instruction and activities over the course of the entire school year.
- 35 students will attend the fifth annual S-Team Rangers Summer Science Institute.
- Every participating classroom teacher (60 at a minimum) will receive 50 hours of training and support from a trained PS Science educator.
"Thank you PS Science for helping to bring science to life at William Green Elementary with hands-on materials, engaging lessons, fun investigations, and memorable experiences. Students in grades 1-5 receive an exemplary science program and teachers gain valuable coaching experience. This program transforms our students to become inquisitive and creative 21st century learners. ""PS Science is a hands-on approach to learning this year in room 24. It is teaching through collaboration and giving the future scientists of Room 24 a way to learn that engages all my students. ""I personally never taught Science before the PS Science program came to our school. It has been a great experience for myself and the students. The students get so excited on Science day! When I was in school our science lessons were taught from a book. We read the lesson each week and then answered the questions and I will admit that I hated Science. I know that my students all enjoy learning Science. "
