Prince William County (VA) Schools Receives $300,000 in new STEM Equipment from Local C&A Scientific

What began as a discussion of picking up a carfull of unused science equipment from a local company turned into a windfall for the close to 90,000 students in the Prince William County (VA) Schools. A great example of the power and impact of community engagement and partnership, PWCS and its SPARK Education Foundation were the beneficiaries of a $300,000 donation of new scientific equipment and supplies from C&A Scientific, a small, family-run Manassas, VA company that designs and manufactures microscopes and laboratory products for worldwide sale. This amazing donation turned into an important learning experience for the PWCS students even before the new equipment reached their classrooms.
