Send a Child to the Academy!

Kids deserve access to the best in science education—yet actual instruction time in most schools is less than two hours per week. We can do better.

The Academy is devoted to offering field trips at free and greatly reduced prices to Bay Area students, but we need your help to make it happen! Our December goal: to support field trips for at least 5,000 kids.

  • Every dollar counts
  • $25 provides a field trip for one student
  • $500 sponsors an entire classroom

And thanks to the Jacques M. Littlefield Foundation, your gift will have twice the impact. All donations made before January 1, 2016 will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $100,000.

Thank you for your support!


As a primary teacher, teaching all subjects to a classroom full of 21st century learners, I need all the expert help I can get. California Academy of Sciences offers cutting edge science that I know will be highly engaging and valuable for my students.
