Cycle for Science brings interactive, renewable-energy focused science lessons to communities by bicycle.
Our driving mission (well, bicycling mission) is fourfold:
INTRODUCE the next generation of scientists and citizens to renewable energy, climate science, conservation, and the scientific method in a way that is creative, hands-on, and culturally relevant.
PROVIDE grade level students with real examples of who scientists are, what we do, and why we do it. Demonstrate that science and scientists are creative, engaging, and fun. Put a real face to a concept, and expose students to women and people of color in STEM careers.
EMPOWER scientists ("sci-clists") to learn from and engage with communities outside of academia, in particular grade level students and their teachers. Participating scientists will advance their science communication skills while gaining a better understanding of the political, social, and economic factors that shape science education and attitudes towards science.
DEMONSTRATE to students, scientists, and the public, via a carbon-free pedal powered trek, that science is an epic adventure!
