Service Beakers is an independent, non-profit outreach program dedicated to an innovative, service-oriented academic program for elementary-age children throughout the Raleigh-Durham metro area. It was founded by a few high school freshmen in February 2020, and through hard work and dedication, it was able to be fully implemented in schools across Wake County! Today, it has staff and alumni advisors from multiple high schools and universities all united by two principles: to serve and educate others. Through captivating presentations, fascinating hands-on activities, and our flagship “Start-Your-Own Initiative”, participating children gain a spark for scientific studies and build unique characteristics of creativity, compassion, and leadership. The recent laptop initiative builds upon our mission, as we seek to provide education access to those who need it the most. Learn more about how Service Beakers builds character unlike any other.
Service Beakers encourage youth to think outside the box
Taught by local high school students, 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 we can, especially through our flagship Start-Your-Own Initiative, which you can learn more about here. We stress the importance of learning, but also fun, safety, and collaboration!
Committed to Opportunity
Our lessons are completely free to students and schools — cost should never be a barrier to education. Moreover, we have sought to provide computers and other technology to underpriveleged students at home and abroad through our recent laptop initiative. These core goals underline our mission to ensure education and a love of learning can be kindled in students of all socioeconomic backgrounds.
