Earlier today, Science Channel and Discovery Education launched “Support Our Science” (S.O.S.), a new initiative that’s part of a larger, on-going effort designed to ignite students’ curiosity while providing educators with the means to build skills and knowledge in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
In partnership with The Planetary Society, Girls Inc. and Maker Ed., S.O.S.’s first initiative will provide two high-need schools with professional development opportunities, hands-on resources and educational equipment. A third winning school will be selected through a national competition at a later date.
The program was officially announced this morning via the White House prior to the start of the 2015 White House Science Fair, which celebrates students excelling in STEM fields. Participating in the annual event was the 2014 winner of the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge, Sahil Doshi, and Seimens Foundation national finalist Ruchi Panday.
