About Us

Service Beakers encourages youth to think outside the box

Our completely free STEM lessons and activities are taught by a local chapter’s high school student volunteers. Service Beakers aims to provide our live-lesson students with a fun, personalized, hands-on, and academically cultivating experience free of cost and full of value. As a service-based organization, we guarantee a positive atmosphere of support and growth for our students to thrive in. We want to bring joy for science and an attitude of compassion to every student, and we also emphasize sustainability and service in our presentations. We stress the importance of learning, but also fun, safety, and collaboration!

Committed to Opportunity

Our laptop grant program ensures that even where Service Beakers’ in-person lessons are not available, young students there still have access to high-quality, interactive, and fun learning experiences. We believe that every student, regardless of background, deserves access to these learning experiences, and we believe that technology can accelerate this mission in under-served areas.
