Delaware Valley Science Fairs, Inc., at Drexel University, is a nonprofit organization that encourages youth to become more involved in science and mathematics.  

Disston ads first appeared in the Carpenter Magazine in August 1881 and appeared every month for decades. Their advertisements help fund the printing of the Carpenter which Peter J McGuire the "father" of Labor Day and of May Day, as well as the founder of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, once said, is the main organizing tool to educate the nonunion carpenter.
