We Need Your Help!


As you know, the last two years have been incredibly difficult for students and teachers. Despite teachers’ heroic efforts, evidence points to large losses in students’ academic and social skills as a result of the pandemic.


Now that students are back in school for the 2022-2023 year, Asombro is eager and willing to help overcome these losses. To ensure that as many students as possible get these experiences, we need your support.


Will you please make a donation in support of science education and the students in our community?
