Need or Have Extra Lab Equipment?

Posted November 14th, 2015


Many of you are familiar with the Science Connexion program and have either generously donated your unneeded equipment or have benefitted from some of these donations. As we approach the holiday season, it might be the perfect time to go through your supply closets and free up space by donating any of your unneeded, but operable science equipment.

 As a reminder, we will pick up your donations and redistribute them to schools in need free of charge.


To donate please go to http://scienceconnexion.org/donate-equipment. If you have any questions contact Jacob.Weiss@connexiones.com
