FREE “Science News” , Tablets, Computer for HS Science Classes in Need!

Saturday August 5, 2017

From Lisa Icenroad
Program Manager, Intel International Science and Engineering Fair:

I wanted to reach out to you to make you aware of an educational opportunity specifically for Arizona schools. The Burton Family Foundation would like to give our Science News in High Schools program to rural high schools across your state. The Foundation would like to focus on schools outside of Maricopa and Pima counties but is open to providing the program to any high school that is in need.

Additionally, if a school does not have access to a classroom set of tablets or other computers, The Burton Family Foundation may be able to supplement their funding to include a classroom set of electronic devices to the school.

If you’re not familiar with the program already, SNHS is a resource that aims to boost science literacy for every U.S. high school student – and gives teachers easy ways to bring today’s science developments into teaching.

We need your help recruiting rural Arizona high schools! Please share the details about the program below. Feel free to post to any message boards, listservs or social media sites. School administrators, science teachers, librarians or anyone else interested on behalf of a high school can learn more at and can sign-up directly at:

If you have any other questions about the program, please feel free to reach out to Anna Rhymes, the SNHS Program Manager, at She will be able to answer any further questions and to give a more in-depth explanation of the program and its unique offerings.

All the best,
Lisa Icenroad
