Through exceptional educational programs and hands-on experiences, The Tech inspires innovation and learning locally, nationally and globally. Individual gifts support the Annual Fund, which pays for the free and discounted field trips and hands-on science labs that are the cornerstone of our institution. We have become a second classroom for thousands of educators, providing access to resources not available in many schools.
The Tech matters to Bay Area young people:
More than 120,000 students visit us for a field trip every year.
More than half our student visitors come from low-income Title I schools and receive free admission thanks to the Annual Fund.
60% of the 36,000 students we serve every year in our hands-on science labs are from low-income schools. The Annual Fund pays for these labs.
