Promoting learning and careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
We are thrilled to announce . . .
Sally Ride Science is now part of UC San Diego!
We will continue to Engage, Educate, and Inspire young people (and their teachers and parents) in science, technology, engineering, and math.
With your support, this is what we accomplished over the past 15 years!
We . . .
organized 100 Sally Ride Science Festivals on college campuses around the country.
created and ran a National Engineering Design (TOYchallenge) competition for eight years and created a documentary film (Some Assembly Required) following five teams of boys and girls during the 2008 competition.
created 90 STEM and STEM Careers books, with comprehensive Teacher Guides, and more than 200 Hands-On STEM Investigations.
developed and held the Sally Ride Science Academy for six years, using a train-the-trainer model.
trained more than 30,000 teachers and reached more than 6 million students with our STEM and STEM Careers books.
operated EarthKAM (Sally's idea to let students take photos of Earth from space and use them in their studies), engaging more than 600,000 students and their teachers in 80 countries around the world.
helped spark the national discussion and shift the national perspective on the importance of involving girls and underrepresented minority students in STEM as they go through school and beyond.
