The students you help will have a better life because of you!

Since 2015, the Student Stewards Program has taught 12,000 students, who then develop the hope of someday becoming a scientist, geologist, botanist, or mathematician. Support the Student Stewards Program to educate the next generation of environmental caretakers!

 

 Your monthly contribution will continue to give students the science education they so desperately deserve to succeed.

help science take flight

Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation is able to offer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) education through K-12 schools, as budgets and resources are being cut. With a third of Washoe County 5th graders not meeting science standards, your monthly contribution will continue to give students the science education they so desperately deserve to succeed.

For most, access to a year-round science program never comes

The Student Stewards Program utilizes community science to get kids excited about the natural world and their local parks through a STEAM-based curriculum. Students collect and analyze data for real scientific research projects for partners like the Nevada Department of Agriculture.

As he continues to challenge himself daily at camp activities, he starts to realize he may want to be an engineer someday.
