Science Sandbox awardees

Science Sandbox, an initiative of Science, Society and Culture at the Simons Foundation, supports boundary-pushing, interdisciplinary projects that support science in culture. Through this grantmaking program, we identify people and organizations who seek to inspire and empower, and partner with them to support their vision. Through our partnerships we strive to bring to light the role scientific inquiry can play in people’s day-to-day lives, while centering communities and voices that have been historically underserved.

Science Sandbox is a national portfolio, and through this campaign we’re supporting our awardees to expand and/or grow their work to support communities in the path of totality. These innovative organizations will be providing opportunities to engage with the eclipse across media, live events, youth programming and more.
