Donors Choose! Help Students Learn About Science
- my latest at Scientific American Blogs
From now until October 22, Donors Choose is running its yearly Science Bloggers for Students campaign, wherein science bloggers and readers of science blogs donate to support science education in classrooms in low-income neighborhoods across the country. All of the money donated goes directly to the teachers who have requested the funds. This is a very good thing, and I support it.
Remember: Every dollar helps! If all you can afford is $5, then that is $5 closer to the amount the teachers must raise. The thing about Donors Choose is that unless the project becomes fully funded, the teacher won’t be able to access the funds. So a $100 project that has only had $95 given still means $0 to that teacher.
I've pre-selected three projects, all from low-income schools in the Los Angeles area to highlight.
