80% of parents want their children to learn about climate change in school.*
THAT'S WHY SKYDAY EXISTS.
SkyDay is a Chicago-based team of scientists, curriculum writing specialists and artists - even an astronaut! - working to give Illinois schools free, trustworthy environmental science units based on the most current science.
Check out our unit for grades 6-8: 'What is happening to the Rusty Patched Bumblebee?'
Did you know this once-thriving native pollinator has declined by 87% in the last 20 years? Now it's on the endangered species list. Why is this happening? And why should you care?
Teachers LOVED this unit in focus groups and now we want to test its effectiveness in the classroom! To do that we need your help.
Please help us raise $5,000 in order to fund our teacher training sessions and to reward teachers for doing the hard work of piloting the unit and gathering the data we need.
