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

Rating: 5 stars  

What an amazing organization Schmahl Science is. There much needed science and technology workshops and demos are done very professionally and at the right level for the students they are working with. Not only do they have many great offerings in science and technology activities, but they have a great staff to do the training and a great Director, Belinda Schmahl, who cares very much for the students she works with and is very in touch with their needs. We are very fortunate that we have Schmal in our back yard. What would we do if we didn't have them here locally, there would be a very big void in the science learning arena. Schmahl offers so many different programs and activities, that we could have them back again and again and the students would continue to learn new things and get some great hands on training. I have had Schmahl Science do a number of activities/demos here for IBM and they are always such a great hit. Besides the students learning, the adult volunteers learn a lot and really enjoy helping with the activities. Belinda's staff is very energetic and personable and they love what they do and the difference they make. I am very grateful to have such a great, high performing organization like Schmahl around. They realy help to fill the science/technology gap that our schools can't fill. organization. I look forward to a long relationship with Schmahl.

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

A number of school events, at some IBM family day type events and I had them do 3 session at each of my two IBM Summer Camps

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

Give them 5 more vans and the equipement to expand their program so they could reach more students.

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

How caring they are to make a difference with our young student population Schmahl Science Workshops, it should be Huge Science Workshops. If only our schools could be so effecttive

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

Just great. Enthusiastic, energetic, and they also loved to play and do these projects/activities

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

Make an amazing dent in what our children miss in school. They could bring their expertise and science/technology programs to all our students. Schmahl is an amazing, very effective option to what our schools can't devliver need help. with.

Ways to make it better...

I had Schmahl do more activities

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

Money/donation challeneges

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

We need Schmahl to expand their program so that they can go to many moreschools and reach even more students.
