"Your cuvette 1UV10 rocks!"
This was a quote from a happy parent who needed a cuvette for her daughter's junior high school science fair. She asked FireflySci if we could help. This request was right up our alley and we were quick to help as we are big supporters of up and coming scientists.
So we had some 1UV10 cuvettes shipped out and below is a e-mail we received from Lana's mother.
"Allow me to share with you some exciting news about how Lana’s science project did at the fair…
Lana received 1st place in Microbiology at her school, 1st place in Microbiology again at the Jersey Shore Science Fair at Rowan University, and yet again 1st place in Microbiology at the regional Delaware Valley Science Fair sponsored by Drexel University! This particular fair is extremely competitive and the students are engaged in presenting from approximately 11:00am to 5:00 pm to groups of as many as 5 judges comprised of professionals and scientists from sponsoring companies such as Dow Chemical, GlaxoSmithKline, Janssen Biotech, TEVA Pharmaceutical and many others. You can see more about it here: http://dvsf.org . Delaware Valley also awarded her a bronze medal for 3rd of all First place category middle school winners! She was also nominated as a Broadcom Masters recipient which will allow her to enter into the National Fair. Lana is incredibly enthused and exciting and will be trying to reach semi-finals.
Having gone through so much to obtain a UV spectrophotometer, only to find that she’d never be able to measure the poly without a quartz cuvette was like hitting a brick wall. We cannot thank you enough for your willingness to extend your help in this process. Companies like yourself set the example for the importance of contributing to student efforts and play an important role in their success. This journey will no doubt be part of what defines her going forward while choosing an educational path.
Please extend our thanks also to everyone on team FireflySci."
Below are some photos that we were sent:
We get no greater joy than seeing our products being used and learning how they actually help people. As we know that our cuvettes are being used in really awesome experiments, we would love to see how you are using them to make the world a better place.
If you have an experiment or cool looking setup that you would like us to post on our website, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll also send you some free goodies as a reward!
Looking forward to reading your amazing cuvette stories and we hope for many more to come!
All the best,
