Back to School Campaign

Back-to-School, Back-to-Science

School buildings are closed, but science education won’t stop


Can you help Asombro continue to meet the needs of local students and teachers in these difficult times?


I want to help!



As of October 9, we’ve been able to deliver science kits to 658 fourth graders and 539 second graders, and we’ve been able to offer a free hands-on lesson to every fifth grade teacher in Las Cruces. We’ve surpassed our goal, but there are still more students who could benefit from your generosity. Can you help?


You have probably already noticed that this is a back-to-school season unlike any other. Teachers are becoming experts at online learning. Parents are making sure their children have reliable internet rather than new school clothes and backpacks. And students are missing their friends yet doing their best to learn at their kitchen tables rather than in classrooms.


For students learning at home, Asombro is providing video content and science kits so that they can continue to experience the wonder of science.

Instead of in the bustling schools that Asombro educators would normally be visiting at this time of year, we’re spending time in front of video cameras and computers. We’re developing innovative new lessons so that students can experience the wonder of science at home. Students are watching our educators through video to learn about fascinating science topics, answering interactive questions, and then doing hands-on science experiments with Asombro-provided science kits.


Your donation to our Back-To-School, Back-To-Science campaign will ensure that we can get these lessons and science kits to thousands of children in our area right away. Together, we can make sure that in this unusual back-to-school season, although classrooms may be closed, science education will not stop. Will you please make a donation today?

Normally, Asombro educators would be looking forward to starting the year by teaching students in classrooms, in schoolyards, and on field trips at the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Park.
