WILL YOU HELP KEEP SCIENCE ALIVE AND WELL FOR STUDENTS OF UNDER-RESOURCED SCHOOLS?
Founded in 2006, PS Science is an education organization based in Inglewood, CA that provides instruction, materials, mentoring, and hands-on learning for elementary students across Los Angeles County. The great minds of tomorrow are in elementary schools everywhere, but science is not. It is our mission to break through barriers of access, time, and materials and help students cultivate a deep understanding of the world while building their confidence and knowledge in science.
As schools were forced to close to help control the spread of COVID-19, our students needed a way to keep learning science from the safety of their homes. We converted our science-based elementary school lessons to be done remotely in a fun and engaging fashion. The PS Science Remote Lessons are quickly becoming the highlight in our student's Zoom classroom weeks, and teachers are inviting PS Science Instructors to join their classroom Zoom sessions to help students continue their learning. However, with uncertainty of the pandemic’s prevalence this summer and following school year, we anticipate financial challenges in continuing to provide these resources. It costs $250 to bring a year of mind-opening science learning experiences to an elementary school student.
-You Can Help-
A gift of $250 will allow us to bring PS Science to another child. The $6,250 that we're looking to raise will allow us to fund an entire classroom of 25 students for a year of science education. Will you contribute any amount to help? Your gift will help provide immediate financial support to PS Science to allow us to keep operating during these times of economic and social stress and keep the doors open for young students to gain access into the STEM careers of their futures!
