School Investment Program
Through corporate sponsorships, the School Investment Program provides an opportunity for New Hampshire elementary, middle and high school students, or school districts, to obtain free admission to the Discovery Center during school field trips for an entire year.
As schools struggle with meeting state and national science and math standards – and tight budgets – this program offers a solution to both. Our programs are designed to meet state and national science and math standards while captivating and inspiring young minds. Free admission to these programs allows all students to participate, regardless of income, and schools are able to offer leading-edge science and math to their students despite tight budgets.
Our goal is to increase the number of New Hampshire students who have access to leading-edge scientific knowledge, to enhance science, math, engineering and technology education in New Hampshire, and to inspire young people to learn more about astronomy, aviation, space and Earth science. We seek corporate partners as sponsors for the School Investment Program. For more information please contact Jeanne Gerulskis, Executive Director, at (603) 271-7827 x 120.
