On behalf of The Citizen Science Lab, I invite your sponsorship and support of our organization due to recent restrictions and cancellations regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
Founded in 2015, The Citizen Science Lab is a nonprofit and community life sciences laboratory dedicated to discovery-based learning, STEM enrichment, and scientific inquiry. We are open to everyone to observe and analyze through discovery-based learning and STEM enrichment. We primarily offer youth-based programs throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area - ranging from homeschool day classes, weekend workshops, summer camps, and innovative, after-school STEM programs. Our labs and equipment are also accessible to learners and scientists of many ages through membership to work on their own DIY projects and any science and STEM competition projects.
To ensure the safety of our students and the Pittsburgh community, The Citizen Science Lab canceled all in person programming. Despite our cancellations, we intend to continue supporting the Pittsburgh community’s young scientists and provide quality STEM education. We are currently shifting to online programming for our students which will include a virtual drone course, tutoring sessions, and STEM learning.
Involvement and support from individuals, corporate sponsors, and foundations is essential to making The Citizen Science Lab’s mission possible and ensuring young scientists have access to meaningful STEM opportunities. Please consider donating to The Citizen Science Lab. All donations will support our transition to providing virtual programming for our students.
Below are giving levels for your reference:
$10: Allows 1 student to attend our webinar-based content for free
$30: Allows 3 students to attend our webinar-based content for free
$100: Supports 1 hour of online programming
$1000: Supports the cost of web-based services that allow the CSL to facilitate online sessions
Investing in budding and enthusiastic scientists now can help us strengthen STEM and STEAM opportunities for Pittsburgh's future. Join us in our quest to observe, experiment, analyze, and discover!
With warm regards,
Andre Samuel, PhD President/CEO
