André Sionek

Curitiba, Parana, Brazil

I'm studying business/management at the Federal University of Parana. I attended, and did not complete, BS in Physics at the same institution. During my major in Physics I worked at the Laboratory of Innovation and Technology in Sensors (LITS) at UFPR, and at the Institute of Molecular Biology of Parana (IBMP), on the development of a prenatal lab-on-a-chip diagnostic test.

Was a sandwich undergraduate student at the University of Pennsylvania, USA, with scholarship from the Science Without Borders program. I got back to Brazil and decided to give back and do something related to science education. Polyteck was created as a form of retribution for the scholarship that I received to study abroad.
