(why science in the hospital is good)

Info about Healing and Hope Through Science

Our mission is to engage hospitalized children with the wonders of science through meaningful learning experiences and to promote healing and hope through positive connections with nature.

Check out what we’ve been up to recently!


We are pleased to announce that Healing and Hope Through Science moved to the NC Botanical Garden on July 1, 2011.  We will continue to serve children at Duke and UNC Children’s Hospitals and are hoping to expand programming!

Interested in donating? All of our programing is supported by grants and donations. All donations are tax deductible and help us continue to put smiles on pediatric patient’s faces.  Please contact Nancy Easterling at easterli@email.unc.edu or Katie at sciencekatie@unc.edu.

*You can now make secure donations online through the NCBG website.

    The Hope and Healing Through Science video of the child who had become a florist was very moving. He was going through a lot – you could hear it in his voice and see it on his face. But you could also see his courage, his strength, his pleasure in his own life and in creation as he thought of the colours of his arrangement and as he meticulously arranged each stem. What a wonderful gift for this child. And what a wonderful gift this chld is to us. Thanks, Katie!
