For some of us, 1994 does not seem that long ago. For others, 25 years is a lifetime or more ago. 1994 was the year that Ron Perkins—a high school AP Chemistry and Physics teacher in Connecticut—realized that he might have hit upon a great idea. Ron was well known in science educational circles for his creative and engaging science workshops for teachers. It was common for educators captivated by his presentations to ask where they, too, could get the materials he demonstrated. Why not provide them a source? Partnering with a former student, Ron founded Educational Innovations.
