My name is Imelda Murillo and a week ago Belinda Schmahl did a presentation in my 6th grade class in East San Jose. I just wanted to thank her for her time in presenting to my students. Mrs. Schmahl had a "conversation" with my students and it made them focus and become intrigued with all the information they were learning. My students face a lot of struggles and with Mrs. Schmahl sharing her personal life struggles they were able to relate and see a stronger future.

Schmahl Science Workshop is a very special, almost magic, way to learn about science. They have designed very simple experiments that children and adults of all levels can participate in. One of the ways it is special is they do not talk down to the kids or change the experiment so it is too simple for the age group. This instills confidence in all the students and allows them to think independently and see possiabilities It is a safe enviroment to learn and question. The kids are free to interact and comment and learn at thier own pace. This is a wonderful way of presenting science to kids and thier parents and making it come alive. Since it is in a interactive enviroment the lessons are remembered and it is a great introduction to the scientific process to all ages.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The kids that participated were 8 and 14 and they both understood the experiment but took different things with them. They liked the fun enviroment and would do it again.

A Schmahl Science Workshop has provided an amazing program for children. I work in a Kindergarten classroom and their program is exciting and hands-on. The children were engaged, excited, and interested in what their workshop had to offer. Their staff knew how to engage the children and keep them interested, which is no small task with Kinders! This is a program that encourages very young children to develop an interest in the sciences. I would highly recommend A Schmahl Science Workshop.

I am a parent who schools her gifted daughter at home. Belinda Schmahl has made it possible for her to study such subjects as Chemistry, AP Biology, and Advanced Molecular Biology at a very young age. Chemistry labs are very difficult to perform at home for instance, so Schmahl has been a lifesaver for us.

Schmahl Science Rocks! As the Dept. Head of Science in a small private school in Oakland Ca, I could not take on the task of coordinating the science fair at my school last year. I called Schmahl and they did everything from the intitial meeting with my students, to one-on-one time with each, assisting them get their initial ideas and procedures. They even provided much of the equipment my students needed to run their experiments. The staff was friendly, energetic, and knowledgable. I can't say enough about our wonderful experience with Schmahl. We all had a great time, and they reenforced much of what the students had already learned in science. It was great for the students to hear from someone else what we teach them daily in class about how science works.

What an amazing organization Schmahl Science is. There much needed science and technology workshops and demos are done very professionally and at the right level for the students they are working with. Not only do they have many great offerings in science and technology activities, but they have a great staff to do the training and a great Director, Belinda Schmahl, who cares very much for the students she works with and is very in touch with their needs. We are very fortunate that we have Schmal in our back yard. What would we do if we didn't have them here locally, there would be a very big void in the science learning arena. Schmahl offers so many different programs and activities, that we could have them back again and again and the students would continue to learn new things and get some great hands on training. I have had Schmahl Science do a number of activities/demos here for IBM and they are always such a great hit. Besides the students learning, the adult volunteers learn a lot and really enjoy helping with the activities. Belinda's staff is very energetic and personable and they love what they do and the difference they make. I am very grateful to have such a great, high performing organization like Schmahl around. They realy help to fill the science/technology gap that our schools can't fill. organization. I look forward to a long relationship with Schmahl.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

A number of school events, at some IBM family day type events and I had them do 3 session at each of my two IBM Summer Camps

How caring they are to make a difference with our young student population Schmahl Science Workshops, it should be Huge Science Workshops. If only our schools could be so effecttive

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Just great. Enthusiastic, energetic, and they also loved to play and do these projects/activities

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make an amazing dent in what our children miss in school. They could bring their expertise and science/technology programs to all our students. Schmahl is an amazing, very effective option to what our schools can't devliver need help. with.

Ways to make it better...

I had Schmahl do more activities

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Money/donation challeneges

One thing I'd also say is that...

We need Schmahl to expand their program so that they can go to many moreschools and reach even more students.

Schmahl Science has done many wonderful things over the years. When I worked in Community Relations at Juniper, they supported our Bring your Child to work day, allowing children to have fun but also continue with their education in the difference programs they offered that day. Further, I worked with them at Sunnyale Art & Wine Festival where hundreds of children were enlightened and educated by their activities throughout the day. They are an outstanding organization run by outstanding people. Barbara Rigdon Public Affairs Representative Kaiser Permanente, South San Francisco

Expand to provide mobile science programs for underprivledged and under served children throughout California and possibly into other states. Children are so limited without this knowledge and Schmahl makes it fun and educational.

A Schmahl Science provides wonderful hands-on science experiments for my students, which enhances the curriculum. The presenters come prepared and are very knowledgeable about what they are teaching. My students especially love the Owl workshop where they get to dissect owl pellets. It is 4 stars instead of 5 because of some accounting/billing problems.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my classroom. The kids really learn the science information because they are learning in a fun, hands-on way. It is difficult for me to plan hands-on science when I have to spend a lot of my time planning for the state testing (LA and Math).

the accounting/ billing department was organized differently. I've had problems with being billed for workshops that my class/grade level team didn't do.

For five years now I have watched Schmahl Science help children become better students. The workshops are designed to encourage kids to poblem solve and think for themselves using experimentation and observation. Because of the 'hands on' nature of Schmahl Science classes they are reaching a large number of students who don't always perform well in the standard classroom setting. The workshops give these kids a sence of pride and accomplishment they don't normally get to feel.

My grandchildren have taken numerous workshops through Schmahl Science and always learn something new and are eager to share their knowledge when they come home. It's a program they enjoy participating in. It's a great program for children of all ages and much needed in our schools.
