The 1st of December is Giving Tuesday! This is a day that is dedicated to recognizing and supporting organizations that do work to uplift and inspire within their community. This year we are participating in Giving Tuesday with the goal of using the extra funding to make our Field Trip in a Box kits more affordable and accessible for groups that perhaps couldn't otherwise afford them.
Since the COVID pandemic began and we realized we could no longer gather in the lab, we've been trying to find new and effective ways to continue providing a hands-on science learning experience for our students. We believe we've found that with Field Trip in a Box, as it uniquely allows us to work with our students while they perform experiments in their own homes. We have a number of different kits and experiments to choose from, you can check them out here.
We are really glad to have found a way to continue doing group experiments in a time when we cannot be in groups. By donating, you help provide many more young scientists in our community with the opportunity to have an engaging educational experience in a time where that privilege has seemingly been lost.
Each experiment costs around $5 to $10 per participant, so it doesn't take much to make a real impact.
