I’m Stepping it Up for Science because…
Two of my passions in life are science and nature. I've signed up to walk a full marathon to raise money for Scientists in School, a charity which allows me to share these passions with students across Canada. As a bonus, I get to be outside enjoying nature and perhaps get a bit of birding in:) I will be hiking at 4 different Provincial Parks over the month of October. I'm hoping to raise enough money to deliver a hands-on interactive workshop to one whole classroom. Thank you for your support!
Donate, and help me Step it Up for Science!
I’m taking part in the 2022 TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon and helping Scientists in School raise $24,000 for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) enrichment workshops across Canada.
Your donation will help bring hands-on STEM workshops to children in low income, rural and remote communities from coast to coast, giving them the opportunity to BE a scientist in school today, and BECOME the researchers, engineers and technologists we need for tomorrow.
Every donation makes a difference for young scientists!
- $27 helps us pack neat goodies into mini science bags, one for each student in the class
- $52 helps us buy the neat stuff for those mini science bags -- from salt to string to soap to stir sticks -- so each student can experiment
- $300 helps us deliver a hands-on interactive workshop for a whole classroom
- $6,500 enables us to Adopt-a-School, delivering hands-on workshops to every class and student in a low-income school
- $12,000 helps us develop a new curriculum-aligned workshop
Consider joining me and registering for the TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon to support Scientists in School. Or, follow us and share your support on social media. @sci_in_school, #STEPitUPforSTEM, #STEPitUpforScience, #ChoosetoSupportScientistsinSchool, #ChooseTORun,
