The great minds of tomorrow are in elementary schools everywhere, but science is not. PS Science brings inspiring programs that cultivate a deep understanding of the world and grow students and teachers who are confident and inspired by science.
PS Science is a Los Angeles based non-profit seeking to narrow the skill gap for children in under-resourced communities, improving their odds for future academic and career success by providing weekly, hands-on science education both during and after the traditional school day. Countless elementary school children do not receive formal science instruction which puts them at a disadvantage in STEM courses when they enter middle and high school. PS Science, through both in-person and online programming, aims to help all elementary schools provide regular weekly science in all their classrooms, and additional, enriching after-school STEM programming. Many elementary schools also struggle to support teachers with science instructional training, curricula and materials. PS Science remedies this by mentoring teachers and providing them with the resources needed to deliver captivating, personally relevant science in their classrooms.
PS Science’s annual revenue is $600,000 - $800,000, with the goal of exceeding $1 million by 2024. We currently serve over 2800 students and 105 teachers annually. For more info visit www.psscience.org
