We all know how crucial scientific literacy is to our society. But in cash-strapped schools across the country, science programs are too often considered a luxury. We're asking you to support science education by donating through the web site Donors Choose, which allows you to donate directly to a classroom of your choice. Do you want to help a Louisiana classroom purchase an aquarium so the students can study a riverine ecosystem? Will you help a New York City science teacher buy Bunsen burners and thermometers for her class, so the students can put down their worksheets and have a hands-on science experience for the first time? We'll be asking for your help through the month of October, and a link to the 80beats Donors Choose page will remain in the sidebar all month. You can give as little as $5, and contributions are tax deductable. Your gift will have a clear impact, as emphasized by the thank you letter that every donor receives from the grateful teacher.
