Currently, organisations spend millions of dollars on scientific equipment, which, due to the innovative nature of science, tends to be readily replaced with the latest and greatest with little care or regards to the afterlife of the superseded equipment.
More often than not, this superseded equipment sits around collecting dust, or, even worse, it is placed in a bin and taken away to landfill in perfect working order. Meanwhile, the infrastructure available for STEM education in schools is limited. Among the educators we have spoken to, the entire annual average budget for Science faculties can be as low as $2,000.
The Phoenix School Program is a small volunteer run charity, we’re always looking for a helping hand. Drop us a line or an email to find out how you can help support STEM.
