Our goal in every community is to become part of the educational fabric, where children become scientists in school in their early years (Kindergarten/age 3) and experience both classroom and community workshops throughout their elementary years. In our mature service areas, students enter high school often having experienced at least 10 of our workshops – one for every year of elementary school!
By becoming involved with Scientists in School, you are choosing to invest your time, expertise or money in something bigger than our organization; you are giving children the chance to love science and school, to shine and be excited about something.
Alexandra is currently embarking on a career in biological sciences with hopes to specialize in either environmental toxicology or animal biology. She has always been interested in animals – she is an avid horseback rider and instructor – but a particular encounter with a special Scientists in School “friend” sparked an interest in science, solidified her love of animals and may have led to her chosen career path.
