The scientists and researchers who are making the next monumental breakthrough in science today all got their start in a classroom science lab. Whether it was the first time they looked at paramecium through a microscope or the first time they mixed hydrogen peroxide with potassium iodide, something clicked inside every one of those students and made them realize that science is going to be their life’s work. We here at Fisher Science Education are extremely proud to be the one providing students with products and resources that are used in this pivotal moment in their life so whenever we come across a school or district who does not have access to the necessary funding to provide these “aha” moments, we jump at the chance to help them. Read on to see how we implemented our new corporate social responsibility program to a school district in need.
Fisher Science Education is committed to promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education in schools all across the country. As demand for jobs in these fields continues to grow, it is important that students possess the necessary skills to face the challenges of the 21st century with confidence and innovation. As part of our corporate responsibility efforts, we also believe in making the world healthier, cleaner and safer and are always encouraging students to experience science safely. With this goal in mind we teamed up with our parent company Thermo Fisher Scientific to create a program that brings STEM and lab safety into the classroom like never before.
