Sponsor an EV Nature and Science Discovery Program to help students bridge the gap!
Early science education sets the stage for lifelong learning, critical thinking, and understanding of science.
80% of K-5th grade multiple-subject teachers in the Bay Area reported spending 60 minutes or less per week on science, with 16% of teachers spending no time at all on science.
Our EV programs provide 90-minute classroom science programs and 120-minute field trip programs that immerse students in age-appropriate, hands-on, discovery-based curriculum on a wide variety of topics. More funding means more science, and with California still below average on science proficiency standards, our programs are filling the gap!
