Special thanks to the Verizon Foundation for their recent grant of $10,000 to support our Middle School Science Programs. The Verizon funds will be used to support Science@OC’s Orange County Middle School Initiative, designed to improve science education for thousands of students to better prepare them for high school coursework and potential careers in high-tech STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)-related jobs.
