Donate to STEM Education for All Summer Scholarships

Choose Your Pledge Amount



Your gift of $10 covers the reduced admission for 1 student in to the Discovery Center for a field trip. The true cost to operate the Center is $25 per person, so your donation helps one more student experience engaging STEM education!



Your donation puts us $25 closer to our goal! Last year, we experienced more than $50,000 in requests for free admission or free/reduced programming and were only able to award just over $20,000 in scholarship funding for around 3,000 low-income students. Your donation puts us closer to our goal of ensuring all students have access to engaging STEM education.



Your generous donation puts us $50 closer to our goal! Funding helps support students that qualify for the Federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program who cannot afford the $6 field trip reduced admission or the $150 - $250 camp or program fees.



Your generous donation is helping us make sure income does not determine a student's ability to access engaging STEM education. The Springfield Public School District’s total for free or reduced lunch is 54.4%. In many of the rural schools surrounding DCS, 60% or more of the students qualify for free or reduced lunch. We know that funding is limited for schools where low-income families predominately reside. We want to make sure these students have the same educational opportunities students have in more affluent areas.
