Science Delivered

Science Delivered Charlottesville combats stereotypes of who can be a scientist and inspires a love of science and learning, and provides much needed science enrichment to K-6 underserved students. Awarded grant funding from the Jefferson Trust supports the in-class Science Lab program in and around Albemarle and Fluvanna Counties, Virginia. The program brings scientists from UVA straight into the classroom to provide engaging, hands-on science enrichment for local students in grades K-6. It has been found that this program is the only provider of hands-on science instruction for many of the kids, and the only scientists that students have ever met. The science enrichment comes in the form of Science Labs, where all necessary materials are brought to the classroom and each student can perform their own experiment, having a chance to interact with the science they’re learning. With sponsorship, the program will be able to provide Labs free to schools.
