One of our favorite science centers in San Francisco needs help from the community. 

The Mission Science Workshopa group of committed educators and makers, is raising $50,000 to expand their reach to low-income children throughout the Bay Area. 

Funding from the campaign will help the group "make sure they have wobble bots and pig hearts to dissect for their Saturday drop-in family science day," "keep the snakes warm at night," and will "even gas up the van the 35-foot grey whale lives in so Salinas Valley can receive its first visit from a Cetacean."

The group writes: 

"Our dream has always been to serve as many marginalized youth in the deepest ways. We have recently ramped up our efforts in expanding our reach, sharing science in ways we never would have dreamed of when we began."

Mission Science Workshop hosts 8,000 students each year and conducts 1,400 workshops annually with San Francisco public schools. 

If you would like to help bring the Mission Science experience to more children, you can make a donation to the Mission Science Indiegogo Campaign

Every contribution to their campaign is rewarded with a gift (and they are pretty cool gifts).
