STEM gets kids excited about learning and learn how to donate to teachers #StartwithScience #ad @theOrkinMan

This post is in sponsorship with the Everywhere Agency on behalf of Orkin. All thoughts and opinions are truly my own.

Being a former teacher I love when teachers really put their focus on math and science. The kids learn so much when they are able to apply it. So putting their hands in and getting them dirty is so important to learning. Last year I went into the kids’ school and helped them do a fun and amazing science experiment. They were predicting outcomes by adding mentos to Diet Coke, Regular Coke and Dr. Pepper. It was fun to be in the middle of their learning. They added more mentos or less mentos to all the different drinks. It was a really fun experiment. Watch the quick video on one outcome and hypothesis!

Being innovative in teaching makes the kids love learning. What she did in the video was to get the kids excited about learning and participating in the project. Because they were excited and participating the learning will stay with them longer. What a fun project!

Orkin’s Start with Science initiative is so exciting. They donate money to teachers who are interested in exploring STEM projects in their classes. I’m excited to be able to donate to one classroom on behalf of Orkin. Were you aware that Orkin has donated $325,000 to over 1,400 different teachers in over 123,000 schools so that they can implement new science and math technologies in their classrooms? What an amazing way to give back. I’m so impressed with Orkin! As a former teacher I can appreciate that they are doing an amazing thing for helping the children in our country. Have you ever thought about donating? Why not donate and help a teacher gets what she needs for science and math to extend the children’s learning. To donate to a project of your choice, visit: Orkin’s Start with science Page.

Here’s how easy it was to donate! Check out my pictures!

Step one click the picture to go to the Start with Science page.

Step two choose your location or you can choose the locations of places like Louisiana who may need help rebuilding their classroom.

Scroll through and find teachers with projects you think are a great idea! My guys are doing pictures with cameras of things they’re learning. Things like angles, nature studies, etc they’ll take a picture and use it in their room to remember what they’re studying.

Step three fill out the information and payment. Then you can choose if you want the kids to send you notes on what they’ve done with it. I can’t wait to see the letters arrive showing me the fun they’re having and the learning they’ve enjoyed.

Then finalize and send them a note why you wanted to support them. Or you can do it anonymously. What a great program. I’m so thankful I was chosen to share this with you. Thank you to Orkin and #StartWithScience for letting me donate using them and their program. What a beautiful thing they’re doing.
