Due to budget cuts our little scientists' laboratory centers have been shut down. We need your help to reopen these centers. We have our little scientist crew willing to work for free and we have the space for these laboratory centers but we don't have the materials. These little scientists are kindergartners. They have highly inquisitive minds. We need your help to feed their inquisitive minds. They are like sponges! Now is a great opportunity to contribute towards this project so as to support their academic growth. In turn, they will support us as our next generation scientists. WHO ARE WE?
