Gala 2009

RSF Cinco De Mayo Gala 2009

Thank you for your support and participation in the Rhinebeck Science Foundation’s incredibly successful First Annual Spring Celebration!

With your help, the Fiesta raised $34,000 — money which will directly impact science, math, technology and engineering programs in the Rhinebeck Central Schools.

RSF is proud to announce a major curricular initiative to be launched in partnership with the Rhinebeck Central School District. “Sustainable Rhinebeck Schools: Combining Stewardship, Sustainability Education and Real World Science with K-12 Students” is the product of intensive collaboration on the part of the Foundation, a faculty planning team, district administrators and the Carey Institute of Ecosystem Studies. In keeping with our mission, it will involve every child in the district and challenge them to research, evaluate and report on promoting sustainability on both school campuses while fostering an activity-based, hands-on approach to teaching our students about the role of the sciences in today’s world.

Your support plays a key role in promoting this and other STEM programs within the District. Thank you for your continued support as we raise funds dedicated to inspiring the minds of the future.
