Free Accounts to Schools Affected by Hurricane Harvey

At Scientific Minds our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey. Having experienced hurricanes Rita and Ike, we recognize how difficult the months ahead will be. To support flooded schools in the devastated areas, we are offering free teacher accounts for the months of September, October, and November.

Harvey is still wreaking havoc on the Texas Gulf coast with the National Weather Service reporting Wednesday or Thursday of this week as the expected date of peak flooding. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is estimating there to be 450,000 disaster victims with 30,000 people in shelters, and those numbers are climbing.

There is no way to predict when schools in the most flooded areas will be able to resume. Sadly, many teachers will be dealing with the loss of personal property as well as the loss of their teaching supplies and materials. Scientific Minds wants to help by providing these teachers with an online resource that covers 100% of the Texas science TEKS for grades 3-8, Biology, and Chemistry. If you are a teacher or administrator in one of these schools, please contact us.

We can get your accounts set up in one or two days and will provide a quick online training session to help you get started. To activate your school, contact us with the name of the affected district and campus, and the names and email addresses of the teachers needing accounts.  You can reach us by phone at 800-886-8145 or by email at

You can find some helpful tips and a downloadable lab activity in a previous blog post titled 4 Tips for Teaching Through a Crisis.

To our educator friends, we know that the recovery work ahead of you is immense, and your students need you more than ever. Please know you have a friend in Scientific Minds – we are cheering for you during these difficult days.
