Donate to The POGIL Project 

We believe every student deserves an education that prepares them to think critically, solve problems, work with others, and experience the joy of discovery.



"As we look forward into the 21st Century and are utilizing very powerful technology, POGIL is a very important piece of making education a human endeavor. I see POGIL as an even more important tool as we move forward into the future of education."

—Leigh Foy, York Suburban High School

Why I Give

"POGIL is teaching for the 21st century. We know that memorization and recall isn't effective. The POGIL Project provides resources for educators and supports those educators with a network of mentors and a community of people who share similar goals and concerns."
Dr. Eileen Kowalski, United States Military Academy
"POGIL is one of several methods that actively engages students in their learning and is an important alternative to traditional lectures. I also approve of the strong faculty development efforts of the POGIL Project."
Hal White, University of Delaware (Emeritus)
"I give to The POGIL Project because of my belief in the value and effectiveness of the pedagogy and the dire need for a scientifically literate society."
Laura Phillips, co-founder, President & Chief Executive Officer, Spheryx, Inc., New York, NY & POGIL Board Member
"Everyone wants to know what I’m doing because my class has good results. I’m not telling my students everything…they’re figuring it out for themselves. POGIL also connects with the Next Generation Science Standards and aligns with all we’re doing to move science forward. I give because it’s nice to spread POGIL out and let other people see what it’s all about."
Kristen Drury, William Floyd High School
"I want to make sure more teachers learn about it through workshops, and students experience it in the classroom. I feel that my contributions are going to a very important use. We are trying to change the way content is taught in the classroom, and POGIL is a leader."
Dr. Mary van Opstal, William Rainey Harper College
“Most schools still have lots of teacher-led classrooms, and that’s not the best way for students to learn. [With POGIL], students are able to construct knowledge and become future scientists because they are learning with 21st Century teaching methods.”
Urik Halliday, Von Steuben Metro Science High School in Chicago
