COVID-19

Understanding most teachers and students are currently working remotely, we have added additional flexible resources to this year’s package. In addition to the traditional supplies, teachers in Santa Clara County will be eligible to receive a membership to either RAFT, CASE, or NSTA – all of which will provide you with additional training and resources to help you execute upon project-based STEM remotely. You will also have the option of selecting one classroom kit that can be broken down and distributed to students outside of school. If you have any questions about this year’s distribution, please reach out to us at hello@outreach-foundation.org

Each teacher may request:
