WHO IS SCIENCE MOM? 

In 2014, I volunteered to do science demonstrations each week in my son's second grade class, and my name changed from "Andrew's Mom" to "Science Mom." I spent several years doing weekly science demonstrations at elementary schools as "Science Mom" before starting the YouTube channel to share the lessons with a wider audience. 

I am a real scientist (masters degree in Plant Science with an emphasis in Molecular Biology), and I make videos for the Science Mom YouTube channel. I also write books designed to encourage investigative thinking, curiosity, and the ability to reason--these are the traits that make science and mathematics such fascinating and wonderful fields. Small and simple things, like an engaging science demonstration or a book, can make a big difference.


WHY JOIN PATREON?

1. More educational printouts and behind the scenes videos! Become a patron to get access to all the patron-only worksheets and miniature books you can download and print yourself. Each month I release a special video just for patrons where I go through the month by numbers, telling you exactly how many books I sold, the number of views the channel had, how much I earned on Patreon, and what we spent that money on. It's an intimate and honest look at the challenges and opportunities of being a creator.

2. Be a champion of science.
Your support is the fuel that keeps this channel and my science outreach going. We've already unlocked some incredible achievements, and there are many more waiting to be realized:

GOAL 1: Give science activity books and an awesome science demonstration to EVERY STUDENT IN A CLASS each month of the school year!


GOAL 2: Give science activity books and an awesome science demonstration to every student in an entire GRADE LEVEL each month of the school year!


GOAL 3: VIDEOS OVER THE SUMMER! Help Math Dad take the summer off so that Science Mom doesn't have to hibernate the YouTube channel over the summer!



GOAL 4: SCIENCE WARRIOR. Space travel is expensive, so this one's only possible with a lot of support from patrons like you. But I hope we'll get there! Science Warrior has an interesting perspective on the social issues facing humanity today.

3. Patrons also get cool rewards like being on the Periodic Table of Patrons, or being a Pen Pal and receiving a personal note from me (and usually a cool miniature book) in the mail each month. Check out the options by looking to the bar on your right (if you're on a desktop computer) or scrolling all the way down (if you're on a cell phone).

WHAT ABOUT A ONE TIME DONATION?

If you would prefer to give a one time donation, you can do so via https://www.paypal.me/ScienceMom. It might be helpful to you to know that if you ever have a month where the budget is tight, you can freeze your support on Patreon so that no funds are withdrawn during that month. You can also cancel your patronage at any time. 

If you aren't in a position to contribute a monthly pledge to Patreon, you can still be a champion of science by sharing my videos and guides. Every time you share, tweet, or post about my videos or the foldable books, it makes a difference! 

But if you do have the means to contribute a few dollars a month, you'll have my enduring gratitude. $5 a month might not make a noticeable difference to your monthly budget, but don't let that trick you into thinking it won't make a difference to me. It does! Every pledge is a huge help. Not only because you’re bringing me closer to the security of knowing I'll be able to keep the best job ever, but because I'm so happy to know that you value these school visits and videos. I dance for joy each time someone joins us here on Patreon.

In gratitude for your support,

Science Mom

It's kinda tough when Ms. Hannah's class gets books but Mr. Newkirk's class doesn't. At this level we will give a science lesson and science activity book to each student in an entire GRADE LEVEL! That's more than 100 kids who will get their own science workbook and Science Mom lesson each month of the school year.
