For years now, Firsthand Learning has provided invaluable assistance to the Buffalo Public Schools, supporting the elementary and middle level science program with hands-on, inquiry-based materials and curriculum-related science kits. As a result, teachers have consistently affirmed that students have performed above the State average on annual standardized tests. And students have reported that their interest in science has increased dramatically, leading many of them to seek more advanced study than they had previously planned. Additionally, Firsthand Learning's after-school programs in collaboration with a wide variety of community organizations have led to work experiences for high school students and exploratory science activities for elementary and middle level children. All in all, I am proud to serve on the Board for an organization that provides such enriching and educational opportunities for a city that exemplifies the racial, ethnic, social, and cultural diversity that our society prizes.
