Our Impact

The Scientific Coat Initiative for Future Innovators promotes students’ scientific passions for higher education, provides teachers the resources necessary for hands-on scientific instruction, encourages the growth of mentor-mentee relationships, and fosters a visible community supporting young scientists’ endeavors.

We achieve these goals by partnering with corporate and academic sponsors who endorse the purchase of laboratory coats emblazoned with the sponsors’ logos. We then distribute these coats to qualifying under-resourced schools, along with other materials intended to aid educators in taking on a hands-on approach to scientific instruction.
