Einstein Project, Inc.
August 13, 2010
When I joined the Einstein Project as a Board Member 4 years ago, I was already familiar with the work they do through my daughter-in-law, an elementary school teacher. She had been using the science kits in her classroom and loved them! She was very enthusiastic about the training and support she received as well as the positive results she saw in the classroom from her students. Once I was able to see "behind the scenes", I was amazed at what they accomplished with such a limited but dedicated staff. Despite the financial challenges and time restraints, the Einstein Project constantly strives to improve hands-on science for both the educators and the students. This is evident through training for educators, website information and reference links, updating and adding of kits. All of this is possible only through strong community support which the staff and Board have carefully nurtured throughout the years. As I have worked with volunteers at our fundraising events, it has been wonderful to see the commitment of so many people to help keep this program fiscally sound. They recognize the importance of the hands-on science education that the Einstein Project brings to so many students.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Every year, the Einstein Project puts on a Science Expo. It's a great experience to just walk around and watch the students' excitement over their science project or an exhibit that they are interested in. They are so engaged!
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The staff and volunteers are incredible! All very commited to the cause and a pleasure to work with on any task.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Focus on bringing hands-on science to all students without concern for school budget cuts; explore use for summer programs, special needs students, individual studies, etc.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
