Students peering into container with magnifying glasses.A Program To Support Equitable Education

Our Adopt-a-School program addresses rising poverty levels in many communities and provides equitable access to our program, levelling the playing field for schools that can’t afford our workshops.

By supporting Adopt-a-School, together we are giving more students the opportunity to dream big and think about a future/career in STEM that perhaps they never thought was possible, until they had a Scientists in School workshop.

Become an Adopt-a-School partner

As an Adopt-a-School partner, you will provide one school in a low-income community with little to no experience with our program, one workshop for every class in the school. Your donation will fund 20 workshops, and your gift will engage approximately 540 elementary school children.

Thanks to our partners, we have adopted 175 schools since 2015, engaging 94,500 young scientists over the years. To learn more and to see a list of our amazing donors, visit our Supporters page.
