Please Support Science Education in U.S. Classrooms

science-classEarlier this month, we asked you to support science education by donating through the web site Donors Choose, which allows you to donate directly to a classroom of your choice. Now we’re asking again.

We all know how crucial scientific literacy is to our society. But in cash-strapped schools across the country, science programs are too often considered a luxury. With Donors Choose, you can help provide the funds for a project that will give kids a hands-on experience of science.

A link to the 80beats Donors Choose page will remain in the sidebar until the end of October. You can give as little as $5, and contributions are tax deductable. Your gift will have a clear impact, as emphasized by the thank you letter that every donor receives from the grateful teacher.

    Why don’t we just write our Congress instead, and have them change the priorities of our country from war and enriching the already rich to actually taking care of our society?

    It is tough to chance people’s priorities. We care more about football stadiums than education. As we sow, so shall we reap.
