A Schmahl Science Workshop
August 3, 2008

This is an excellent non-profit that provides hands on science programs for children. My son has always been interested in science however in his school courses he only learns about science through reading, videos and very little lab work. Schmahl actually got him involved in science with hands-on labs and explained how science is applicable every day and in everything we do. We can't afford to only teach our kids the basics in schools they need to be motivated to want to learn and apply their learning to better the world. Schmahl is a great way to enhance the science capabilities of any school.

Ways to make it better...

The organization had the ability to develop more workshops and expand to more schools

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

Obtaining money to pay for administration costs and to carry them over when public school payments are delayed.
