“Teaching science effectively requires demonstrations, hands on assignments, and interactive field work. All of these things makes science a favorite subject for many students. It is often stressful trying to find creative ways to fund science costs. This grant was great because it met my need without taking away too much of my planning time.”
– Kevin Terjesen, science teacher, A.P. Giannini Middle School, San Francisco
