Einstein Project, Inc.
August 12, 2010

I met the Einstein Project in the early 1990's when our school district was searching for a new science program. This was a perfect match for me as a classroom teacher. I did not have a good science background. The Einstein Project provided this with teacher training. The units are hands-on and teacher friendly. My students and I love the units! As time went on I became a teacher trainer for 3 of the units. Three times each year the Project provides training for classroom teacher who are new to the units. I am also a member of the Einstein Board of Directors and the chairperson of the Education Committee. The Einstein Project provides me, the classroom teacher, with the additional science backgroud that as an elementary teacher I did not have. It also provides me with additional teaching strategies, curriculum extensions, technology, and much more. This is the best way to teach elementary science. The students comprehend science concepts of much higher levels by doing hands-on, not just reading from a textbook.

The Great!

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

their care and committment to providing students with quality science units. Students develop critical thinking skills, and become effective problem solver. The units make science fun!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide them with the needed funding to ease the Projects money concerns and allow them to concentrate on the goal of continuing to provide quality science units for the 21 Century.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Teaching science with the Einstein Science units has allowed me to become a better informed teacher and my student to be better critical thinkers and problem solvers.

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

always friendly, helpful, and encouraging.

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

provide the BEST science education for students in the 21st Centur.

Ways to make it better...

the Project had the financial backing and did not have to devote so much time to fund raising. Then more time could be devoted to sdvancing the best science practices for the 21st Century.

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

two-fold. First to provide the best science education to students in the 21st Century, and second, to acquire the funding necessary to provide this service to schools.

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

the Einstein Project is the best educational organization I have ever worked with. They are forward thinking, science driven, and people friendly!
