About our program
The inspiration for Science Connexion was born of the experiences of Brandon Tucker, a high school science teacher during his volunteer work in Ghana, Africa in 2007. During his month in Ghana, Brandon taught science to over a hundred students and for the first time found out what it was like to teach science without lab supplies. Upon his return home, Brandon initiated a movement with other science teachers in collecting science equipment for shipment back to Ghana. It was during this initiative that Brandon discovered the abundance of science resources that were available and under utilized. These outgoing but mostly serviceable assets could easily be repurposed and channeled to schools much closer to home than Africa, but also in dire need.
