Give Now

Rural high school students need your help

Help high school students explore science.

When you give, you help high school students attend the new Summer Science Workshop Series. This new, entirely digital experience is helping students learn cutting-edge, hands-on science from top scientists during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The workshop, and previous Rural Summer Science Camps, have been, and will always be, entirely free of charge because of donors like you.

Make your gift now to support important science outreach and education programs that inspire children and families to explore the wonders of science.
