Review for A Schmahl Science Workshop, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an amazing program run by an amazing woman! Schmahl Science has brought fun, wonder and curiosity to science education, thereby inspiring many kids (and their parents!) to love and pursue science. My kids benefitted greatly from this program; it shows in their science grades, in their curiosity about their world, in their success at science fairs and in their commitment to make the world a better place. I have investigated other hands-on science supplemental programs, but none comes close to creating the positively charged, exciting learning experience that inspires kids to love science and learning as does Schmahl Science.

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

Seeing my kids' success in science and love of science.

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

Learning so much as I helped my kids and others explore.

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

All caring, with a genuine love of science and the desire to see others share their enthusiasm.

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

Be in every school in California. If it was, California kids would surpass the world in science instead of being at the bottom.

Ways to make it better...

Donations were enough to cover operations so that the program could expand and grow.

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

How to clone Belinda so that the program can continue to grow and be successful when she is ready to retire.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
