In addition to our major investment in Imagineering, SRVEF invests in Science teachers at all levels within the SRVUSD. Our funding provides:
Professional Development Training available to all science teachers through Lawrence Livermore National Lab.
Annual field trip to Resource Area for Teachers (RAFT) that gives all science teachers a 1/2 day visit to the warehouse to choose science kits for their students, listen to a keynote speaker and enjoy lunch with their colleagues to collaborate and discuss new and innovative teaching methods.
Science Day in the Dougherty Valley. Every May, all 5th grade students are invited to DVHS to participate in a 1/2 day of science experiments and presentations run by high school students. It's a bunch of exploding and messy fun booths that delight the children and give them a glimpse into their future days in high school. This funding is available for all four high schools to offer to all 5th grade students in the SRVUSD.
Funding for the Contra Costa Science Fair teams within the SRVUSD.
