Target demographics: prek - 12th grade students in San Francisco Bay Area

Direct beneficiaries per year: To prepare for a future increasingly driven by science and technology, children need meaningful and lasting science experiences. Students that are encouraged and successful in science today are likely to continue in science tomorrow. Sadly, most students get less than forty-five minutes of science education per week.

Geographic areas served: Greater Bay Area, CA (Gilroy to San Francisco)

Mission:
To provide hands-on science activities for kids in a fun, engaging, free-form environment.

A Schmahl Science Workshop:

Believes children are motivated to learn when their ideas are cultivated through the fun of designing and developing an experiment.

Challenges children to use the scientific method as a powerful tool that will facilitate them as they explore the world around them.

Provides the highest quality hands-on workshops that are presented to students in classroom, lab or garage settings by instructors whose interest in and enthusiasm for science is communicated in a fun and exciting way.

Promotes successful inquiries into science with our open-ended, hands-on, mentor-supported approach to science fair projects.

Designs units that integrate hands-on experiments and activities with discussion of the history of science as a work in progress
Results:
Since 1996, we have served over 86,000 students and over 7,000 teachers.  Each of these students on average participates in 20 workshops a year resulting in over 1,519,735 student contacts since our founding.  In the 2007-08 academic year we served 20,273 preK-12th grade students.
