The Traveling Science Demonstrations S.T.R.A.N.D. Program, a partnership between the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center (RPSEC) and Savannah River Site (SRS), provides scientsists and engineers who are experts in their fields to teach in the areas of mathematics, engineering, chemistry, biology and physics to Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) Schools. SRS volunteers conduct demonstrations and experiments for teachers and students using Traveling Science Demonstration Programscience kits accessible by loan to each of the schools. The program involves students with world-class scientists and enhances teachers' abilities to provide hands-on math and science equipment not available in most schools. This program is for CSRA elementary, middle and high school students.


The STRAND volunteers are limited to 35 children per group, however, you may request that they work with more than one group during the day. All requests should be received at least 3 weeks prior to the time frame you are requesting.
