Leap into Science
Leap into Science is a nationwide program that integrates open-ended science activities with children’s books, designed for children ages 3-10 and their families. We empower educators to offer programs in community settings like libraries, museums, and out-of-school time programs to engage underserved audiences in accessible and familiar settings.
Parents know to read to their kids at night, but what about math? Our goal is simple: to make math a fun part of kids’ everyday lives, as beloved as the bedtime story. Bedtime Math sends parents a fun, new math problem every day, on everything from electric eels and chocolate chips to roller coasters and flamingoes. Targeted for kids ages 3-9, it begins with a short, fun set-up story, followed by three math problems at three levels of challenge.
