I will be running the 2020 Boston Marathon to help support STEM Education through the Boston Museum of Science! The fundraising goes directly towards the traveling programs. These programs visit schools all across New England to provide supplementary education and activities to students. The programs serve more than 100,000 people each year with science enrichment programs for chemistry, physics, weather, animal biology, astronomy, engineering, and more. My fundraising specifically helps with new activities and demonstrations for students, growing the number of programs for every subject, and providing scholarship opportunities to bring programs to schools with financial need.
As a teacher in STEM, I can't express enough how wonderful these programs are in supporting our students and fostering their love for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Please consider helping me to fundraise towards this incredible cause. Thank you so much!
In 2010, the Boston Athletic Association awarded community partner bibs to the Museum of Science for the Boston Marathon®. All funds raised by the runners would support the Traveling Programs. Traveling Programs’ mission is to teach exciting outreach programs that ignite curiosity in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M).
Last year we made 1,089 outreach visits, taught 2,127programs, served over 100,000 people, and drove 65,367 miles. Communities need science enrichment programs more than ever, and we need your help. Your support will aid in scholarships, program expansion, and of course, the vans that make this entire program possible.
