#GivingTuesday

Make this holiday season one that positively impacts the life of a child. Donate to one of the Putnam’s hands-on learning campaigns. Help support a child’s learning at Putnam this #GivingTuesday, Nov. 28th!

#GivingTuesday is a global movement of holiday giving through donations, gifts or the power of your voice. Proceeds will help fund our Hands-On Learning Campaign. Giving starts NOW and runs through Nov. 28. LET’S DO THIS!

Please consider the following when making your generous donation:
$200 donation: With this amount, you can sponsor one child for a whole week of summer camp. Summer camps give kindergarteners through eighth graders the opportunity to experience hands-on learning and to spark their interest in science.
$100 donation: Create an unforgettable learning experience by bringing a Putnam educator into a local classroom. Through our outreach program, educators visit a local classroom to share artifacts, experiments and hands-on learning.
$50 donation: Pay for one child to attend one day of Engineering Camp. Engineering camp explores robotics, creates team building opportunities and explores careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
$25 donation: Support one fifth grade student for one day of our IMMERSE Program. Our IMMERSE program gives local students access to all of Putnam’s on-site resources – artifacts, hands-on science experiences, Giant Screen documentaries, history exhibits, MIT Fab Lab, Discovery Dome and more. IMMERSE makes the Putnam their classroom – immersing them in hands-on learning and enrichment!

What is hands-on learning?
Hands-on learning makes the difference between an educational experience that will be remembered and one that will be forgotten. The Putnam opens up a world of imagination and exploration. Through interactive exhibits, hands-on play and the support of our talented education staff, children take ownership of their learning and develop and explore their own curiosities at the Putnam. This develops higher critical and creative thinking skills, which are essential to future success.
