Science Connexion will provide a receipt for material received from donating schools.

Please be sure to abide by your district's regulations for donating material. Donated material will be redirected to underfunded K-12 schools in the Chicago area. Donor schools cannot designate a specific school to receive donations.
If you are a public school within the Chicagoland area in need of science equipment, please go to our Request Equipment page and enter and submit your request (based on available donated equipment). Your equipment, if available will be sent to you within 7 days of receiving your request.
