You Can HelpGiving
Because you understand the urgency for improved science literacy and the critical need to support teachers in their mission to create tomorrow's innovators.
Your contribution to PlantingScience is vital. The United States Departments of Labor and Commerce make it clear that now and in the very near future, employment opportunities will require a basic understanding of math and science. These projections come at a time when we’ve seen a dramatic decline on a national level in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education and student performance.
Science solves problems and creates solutions. And to tackle this critical problem of science literacy we’ve mobilized scientists, scientific organizations, and education specialists who together create PlantingScience.
Now, we’re asking you to help by becoming part of the solution too.
Help us continue to offer this unique program to teachers — one that provides all science students with an authentic science experience. Your help will give students the opportunity to develop critical inquiry skills through the actual process of science. It will inspire new generations of scientists.
There are number of ways you can make a difference. Your gift, sponsorship, or grant at any level will sustain and continue to grow this important STEM learning program. It will be directly applied to support middle and high school science teachers and their students.
Your important contribution will go a long way to ensure that students will begin to develop the important competencies and skills necessary to become critical thinkers and our future innovators.
