#GivingTuesday 2018

Help Give ALL Students Engaging and Inspiring Experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math!

The results are in: RESET is far more than a successful experiment. An all-volunteer organization of scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians, RESET engages students in the STEM world, encouraging them to consider a future in the field. Serving 36 schools and community centers, RESET reaches approximately 2,100 youngsters annually (pre-K - 8), many of whom live, or attend school, in low-income neighborhoods. Volunteers (currently 160) are sourced from prestigious STEM organizations and agencies in the DC area, including, EPA, NIH, The Patent and Trademark Office, The Howard Hughes Medical Institute and others. They work closely with classroom teachers to lead hands-on experiments that support curriculum and encourage self-exploration. An engineer shows how to generate electricity using wind, sunlight, and mechanical energy; a physical anthropologist complements an Earth and Life Sciences module by discussing early humans' posture and appearance. The goal is not just to teach chemistry or robotics, but to provide children with positive, relevant and exciting adventures in science and math; with those who have made this their life's work. With your help, they will inspire a new generation of eager inventors and space explorers!
