Last updated on February 9, 2015


ReSET is a Washington D.C. based non-profit volunteer organization. Our goal is to show elementary school students that science and math learning are exciting. We aim to reduce the number of U.S. students who lose interest in science and math before they reach high school.

ReSET volunteers are retired or actively-employed professionals with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering or math. ReSET volunteers partner with elementary school or pre-Kindergarten teachers to lead classroom programs of hands-on science or math activities. ReSET volunteers lead students in six one-hour sessions of science/math experiments, followed by field trips related to their field of inquiry. ReSET has an orientation program for new volunteers and supports volunteers with school placement and program execution. ReSET pays for supplies, equipment, volunteer transportation and field trips.

ReSET was founded in 1988 by science educator and author Dr. Harold Sharlin. In 1989 ReSET began serving area schools by placing seven volunteers in two DC elementary schools. In school year 2012-13, ReSET placed 90 volunteers in 32 schools in D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia, including Arlington.
