Science, technology, engineering, and math, otherwise known as STEM subjects, are the way of the future and with good reason. Kids get excited for what they can build, create, experience, and ultimately attain.
There are easy ways to prepare kids for STEM subjects at home. Simply playing in the water or raiding the kitchen for your next science experiment require little to no cost, but boundless amounts of hands-on learning. And Orkin hopes to amplify that eagerness to learn into the classroom through their Start with Science initiative.
Start with Science provides materials to classrooms in need, making those experiences possible for kids and children around the country. Did you know Orkin has donated over $325,000 to fund 1,400+ projects for more than 123,000 U.S. public school students? And you can help!
From August 22nd to September 26th, the Orkin Start with Science campaign will let you fund in-class learning experiences in public and charter schools nationwide via DonorsChoose.org. The process for which is really easy to do. In fact, we donated a total of $250 to 3 of our local schools’ STEM projects.
Each of the STEM projects we donated to through DonorsChoose.org will further enhance science and math education. One particular project was for STEAM kits for kindergarten classrooms. It’s rewarding to know that we’re helping them get started early. Another that I’m really happy to help with involved purchasing Chromebooks and charging stations so the class could take math online. And then, once a DonorsChoose.org project is fully funded, the teacher will send each donor a thank you note.
There are so many great projects that need your help. And I love that every donation is matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, so even the smallest donation goes further than you think. Click here to pick your favorite project to donate to.
