It’s almost here…one of the biggest nonprofit donation days in Minnesota: Give to the Max Day! This Thursday, November 15, GiveMN will host Give to the Max Day, a very special and exciting day for nonprofits and schools to raise funds for their causes. Every donation you make gives your favorite organization the chance to win even more money! Since its launch in 2009, GiveMN has helped raise over $50,000,000 for hundreds of Minnesota organizations. As you probably know, I’m a huge supporter of the Science Museum of Minnesota, and Give to the Max Day is a great opportunity to support them!
Supporting the Science Museum of Minnesota is a great way to help enrich the growth and learning of kids in our communities. Last year alone they informed over 800,000 citizens and policy makers through relevant exhibits that offered opportunities in early childhood development, the learning of fundamental math and the learning of design and innovation education. The Science Museum of Minnesota is doing so much for the development and inspiration of children all over Minnesota. They’ve trained almost 2,000 teachers and inspired over 100,000 students all while supporting achievement by increasing mastery of fundamental science, engineering, technology, and math concepts through engaging, well-researched and relevant lessons. The Science Museum of Minnesota trains thousands of science and math teachers each year, helping teachers make STEM learning more fun! I think it’s so important to get kids excited about STEM education, and the Science Museum of Minnesota values this, too!
I remember going to the Science Museum as a little girl, in awe over the dinosaurs and fascinated by the fun hands on learning. I took classes during the summer that helped to ignite my passion for science and learning. As I have grown older the Science Museum has taken a special interest
in my goals to be an astronaut and have invited me to participate in events such as Earth Day 2012 and the Boo-Ology event. These events have allowed me to share my love of science and learning with many younger kids which is what STEM is about passing it on and making sure we ignite kids and excite them. The staff at the Science Museum continues to encourage and support my dreams which shows that they are dedicated to their mission. It is because of this that I support them and ask you to consider a donation too. Let’s keep STEM education going strong and pass it on to the next generation.
Join me in supporting this incredible organization. Your donations will help the Science Museum of Minnesota continue to train teachers, inspire kids and inform citizens of the wonders of science. Inspired to give? Learn more.
