Science Initiative

In addition to our major investment in Imagineering, SRVEF invests in Science teachers at all levels within the SRVUSD. Our funding provides:

  • Professional Development Training available to all science teachers through Lawrence Livermore National Lab.
  • Annual field trip to Resource Area for Teachers (RAFT) that gives all science teachers a 1/2 day visit to the warehouse to choose science kits for their students, listen to a keynote speaker and enjoy lunch with their colleagues to collaborate and discuss new and innovative teaching methods.
  • Science Day in the Dougherty Valley. Every May, all 5th grade students are invited to DVHS to participate in a 1/2 day of science experiments and presentations run by high school students. It's a bunch of exploding and messy fun booths that delight the children and give them a glimpse into their future days in high school. This funding is available for all four high schools to offer to all 5th grade students in the SRVUSD.
  • Funding for the Contra Costa Science Fair teams within the SRVUSD.
