A Schmahl Science Workshop
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.
