$4,000 in Science Funding
$1,387 was donated to The Einstein Project for hands-on science learning and teacher training
This summer, you helped us support important science-related nonprofit organizations in our Smart Cow communities. In Green Bay, our Grassroots Tuesdays were dedicated to The Einstein Project, a local organization that supplies hands-on science kits to elementary and middle schools across northeastern Wisconsin. With your support, our donation helps keep kit costs down, and participation up.
For the third consecutive summer, our Arvada, Colorado store dedicated its Grassroots Tuesdays to the Outdoor Lab Foundation. Outdoor Lab has been enriching the lives of 6th grade and high school students for more than 54 years. Located in the mountains of Colorado, the two Lab schools give all students the opportunity for experiential, outdoor science exploration. Over three years, Smart Cow has generated almost $10,000 for Outdoor Lab, providing scholarships, outdoor luggage stations and 7,000 field guides for student use.
For the second summer, our Castle Rock, Colorado shop dedicated its Grassroots Tuesdays to the Douglas County Outdoor Education Center. Elementary students spend time on the 100-acre property learning about science and nature and build teamwork skills through activities like zip-lining and ropes courses. Smart Cow’s donations have helped provide hand-held geocaching computers and funding for a new wildlife room.
We’re on a mission to support local education. We’re grateful for your support and the valuable partnership we’ve created together. Let’s keep it going!
