Thank you for another amazing year where many wonderful but also challenging things have happened. Despite the curve balls the pandemic brought, our programs have experienced a huge increase in demand. We are offering more school-day field trips, after school programs and also school site visits with our gray whale skeleton, renewable energy and tinkering programs than ever before. We have also started new programs like our “Girls in Science” after school program, expanded our internships with three local high-schools and SFUSD Access to also bring programs to students and young adults with disabilities, and much more. We have also increased the partners we work with (over 90 different schools and community organizations in San Francisco and also Oakland!) and have seen thousands of students and their families join in our weekly community drop in events.
This year has also been challenging. Our beloved founder and mentor, Dan Sudran passed away last June leaving an irreplaceable emptiness in all of us but also injecting everyone in the organization with a stronger sense of purpose to fulfill our mission of bringing meaningful hands-on science to everyone in San Francisco and beyond.
We are working hard to make sure that our community workshops are an inclusive and inspiring place for everyone to enjoy and feel like their ideas and interests are supported and welcome. That’s why this year we are offering a record number of free programs and are also looking into expanding to best serve the students and communities who need our programs the most.
Please consider making a contribution today to help us continue Dan’s legacy.
