History of the Fund

Steven Van Dyke was one of the Einstein Project's co-founders in 1991. He was a gifted engineer and former CEO of Foth & Van Dyke (Foth). After Van Dyke's passing in 2008, a fund was developed with leadership gifts from his friends & family in his honor. The fund's purpose is to provide schools/district an opportunity to introduce hands-on, inquiry-based science/engineering curriculum in their programming. We encourage others to donate to benefit hands-on, inquiry-based education.
