NCSE's Science Booster Clubs


Want a way to help your community directly support your local science teachers? We've got one! The National Center for Science Education piloted the Science Booster Club project in Iowa May of 2015. As of 2017, we went national!

Clubs are up and running in Ohio, West Virginia, Tennessee, Texas, Maryland, Virginia, Kansas, Oklahoma, Indiana, Illinois, and Nebraska. We are looking forward to continuing to hear stories about our clubs' work on the ground in these diverse, challenging areas.  We are currently interviewing new candidate leaders in Wisconsin, Colorado, and Massachusetts, and we're looking for people from a couple more states to join up in 2018.  Please get in touch if you want to volunteer!

Science Booster Clubs (SBC) are a new way to support science education at the community level. For more, watch the video below.

The Science Booster Club project is ready for limited national launch. As we continue to learn from our experiences at our research base in Iowa, we are also rolling out our program at test sites nationwide. Are you active in one of our current states? Send NCSE an email at, we'll figure out a way for you to help!

Sign up now to start your own Science Booster Club!

We want to know what your local teachers need and help you find ways to bring fun science events to your community.

You can find out more about our first ever Science Booster Club in Iowa City here. Also check us out on Facebook, or if you are in an active state, get in touch!
