This year has been one of exciting new growth, especially with our Excelsior Site! We are reaching more students than ever before, and are proud to say that we have been able to expand our programs to reach high-need schools in Bayview/Hunters Point with free hands-on science field trips.

We've added new Wednesday open house hours to our workshop in the Mission. These Tinker Time and Saturday programs are free and open-to-everyone; brimming with families from across the city -- making magnetic bumbleboppers and birdhouses, or learning about water scorpions and cow eyeballs.

When a fire forced us to relocate two years ago, we saw a groundswell of support to maintain this valuable community resource in the Excelsior district. However, we are still facing a major challenge to stay in this space. City funds have helped us pay the difference in rent cost (about $5000 more than we had been paying). In the new year this aid from the city will expire and our small non-profit will be forced to make up that cost.

Each dollar raised goes towards keeping MSW's doors open, stabilizing our presence in the neighborhood. We need your help to continue serving communities in SF. Please consider making a contribution today.

Mission Science Workshop is a fiscally sponsored by Community Initiatives , a 501(c)3 non-profit.
