Scientist.com, a leading marketplace for scientific services, announced today that it has continued its support of the Solana Beach Schools Foundation (SBSF). In partnership with the Solana Beach School District, SBSF provides funding for instruction, materials, supplies and technology used in each school’s STREAM Discovery Lab.
“Thanks in part to the contributions of partners like Scientist.com, our schools’ faculty, staff and administration continued STREAM instruction despite the many logistical challenges facing schools nationwide over the last 18 months,” stated Kim Criscuolo, President, SBSF. “Our district has developed new and engaging ways to remotely deliver Discovery Lab classes safely to all students in the district.”
While many schools across California reopened in the spring, Solana Beach School District students have had the opportunity to be in class and in-person since September, and the district started phasing-in students to four days a week in November. As of March, all grades were in-person four days a week with students who opted for distance learning remaining in the Online Scholars program.
“It is important that local companies support STREAM programs at the elementary, middle school and high school level,” stated Kevin Lustig, PhD, CEO and Founder of Scientist.com. “We need to prepare our children today for the many challenges they will face in the coming years.”
