Fermilab Friends for Science Education (FFSE) needs you now!

More than ever our society and economy are driven by scientific and technological innovations. We want a strong future and must support our future scientists and their teachers now. We need a scientifically literate and aware society. National reports such as Rising Above the Gathering Storm, Revisited and others strongly state the case for improving science (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education. Your donation allows us to create new, innovative science education programs and make the best use of unique Fermilab resources. Hear video and read testimonials from Education Office program participants and FFSE supporters.

We thank our current members for their support. We could not have achieved our remarkable record of success without member contributions; we will not be able to maintain this record without your help in the future. The contributions provide flexibility not possible through Fermilab or DOE funding. Fermilab itself does not have access to, nor does it benefit directly from the funds. Monies go directly to support teachers and students and families in our communities as they participate in our programs. Over the past twenty years, Fermilab Friends for Science Education, formerly Friends of Fermilab, has brought in over four million dollars in outside grant money for science education programs.

If you (or your spouse) work for one of the thousands of matching gift corporations in the U.S., your employer will match your gift to Fermilab Friends for Science Education. Just obtain the forms from your employer's personnel office, fill the information required and mail to FFSE; we'll do the rest.

All Fermilab Friends for Science Education members receive FFSE publications and invitations to special events at Fermilab. All contributions to FFSE are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
