Sacramento's Big Day of Giving | May 4th, 2017

“I appreciate you allowing us to have an inviting and enthusiastic way to allow my students to learn geology. You have helped us create life long geologists.”
— 4th Grade Teacher from Pacific Elementary School

Students Served in Sacramento

STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) literacy is in critical demand and Sacramento area elementary schools are booking Sierra Nevada Journeys as their education partner for both students and educators at an incredible pace. 

Our in-class and field-experiment programming has grown from 12 schools and 930 students in 2015 to 30 schools and 4,500 students this year! We have waiting lists and need to hire more educators and equipment to keep up with the demand. Sacramento is hungry for our programming and Sierra Nevada Journeys needs your financial support to continue to deliver it.

We focus on under-served communities who typically get less than one hour of science instruction per week and turn 1st - 6th graders into environmental scientists, geologists and engineers during our programming. 90% of the students we serve demonstrate a significant improvement in science standards based on assessment data!

Join the fun on May 4th for Sacramento Region Community Foundation's Big Day of Giving. If you'd like to get a head start, schedule a donation starting April 14th.

Join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on May 4th as we share exciting updates and attend two Classrooms Unleashed programs and a Family Science Night. #BDOG2017
