DollarDays, the nation’s leading supplier of wholesale goods for small businesses and nonprofits, is pleased to announce today they are working with Google on the “Making & Science” initiative to inspire future scientists and makers. DollarDays is providing an arts, crafts and tool kit that can be used with the Science Journal Android App created by Google’s Making Science team. DollarDays’ kit is unique in that it provides almost every item needed to support all of the activities in the Science Journal Android app.
“We are excited to be working with Google on this initiative. Providing the supplies in the Science Journal kits aligns with DollarDays’ philosophy of supporting educational growth programs,” said Marc Joseph, CEO and president at DollarDays. “Team DollarDays is proud to be a part of inspiring the future.”
The Science Journal kits support activities developed by Google and the Exploratorium. Each kit includes the supplies for these activities which can be accessed through the Science Journal, a digital science notebook that helps kids and adults explore the world around them. The arts, crafts and tool kits include enough supplies for one facilitator and seven to eight children; available now on DollarDays’ website, it retails for $499.
“We wanted to provide these kits to be used in the classroom, in after-school programs and even at home to inspire the curiosity of our children in building, experimenting and creating with combining science and technology,” said Shelly Chaney, Vice President of Merchandising at DollarDays.
