Science Education News: Mostly about money

Sara Lee isn’t just a baked good any more:

Sara Lee Schupf, the namesake of the Sara Lee bakery brand, will this week announce a $1.5 million gift to the New York Hall of Science to create a Center on Play, Science and Technology Learning, or SciPlay at the Queens institution.

The center will serve as an incubator and research hub to develop programs and educational materials for teachers that support connections between play, science and technology. Mrs. Schupf’s gift will also provide funds to recruit a group of fellows at the center.


The Denver Science Museum (remember this?) will receive a grant of 3.27 million dollars. The good news: That’s the largest federal grant the DSM has eve received. The bad news: That is the largest federal grant the DSM has ever received? Wot????

Finally, Student researchers boost Biosphere 2 attendance. Details here.
