A number of science bloggers over at SEED,including myself, have started a fundraising action to help teachers around the country buy supplies they need to teach science and math more effectively. Many of the teachers work in poor schools with a large proportion of poor children and have virtually nothing in terms of neccessary materials.
Thus, several of us are urging our readers to pitch in, a few bucks at a time, to help these teachers. You can read all about it here. Choose the programs you support, either one chosen by me, or one chosen by another one of my fellow science bloggers. If you do, you will be entered into a pool for for some nifty prizes as well.
