Science Kits for all
With so much learning being done virtually, here at the Institute of Science we have had to come up with alternative ways to reach students. One of the things we’re doing is creating, on average, up to 1,000 science kits every week to be delivered to Michigan students so they can continue exploring and engaging with science.

This initiative would not be possible without the support of some of our partners. Thank you to PNC Bank; DTE Foundation; FCA Foundation, the charitable arm of Stellantis; DENSO; and the many supporters of Women Rock Science for helping us make the science kits and outreach programs possible for students throughout Michigan as we continue to navigate this virtual world together!
