The Problem

Child Advocacy Centers provide care for victims of child abuse. During a child\'s first visit to a CAC, they get to choose a teddy bear which gives them a cuddly friend to keep them company and allows them to reaffirm their goodness and agency through the act of choice. We are helping give children a unique plushie choice, and the photos we take of our bears to share on social media promote STEM careers awareness to members of our community in a fun and inspiring way.

Our Plan

“Science Bears” is a special Art Technically project that creates scientist-themed teddy bears for children in need such as children at Child Advocacy Centers. We delivered 29 Science Bears to the Memphis Child Advocacy Center in August and we\'re seeking funding to make and deliver more bears to other CACs in Tennessee.
