How can you support our Instructional Materials Technicians?
Without instructional materials to engage our students, authentic hands-on science teaching and learning would come to a screeching halt. Our technicians work behind the scenes to refurbish every unit so they are like "new" when it arrives in your classroom. Please be considerate and re-package the materials with care -- they should come back used, but not abused.
Our techs do their best to conserve materials. Messes take a long time to clean and usually mean something is damaged. We hope you understand taking a few moments to carefully prepare your units for return can help keep costs down and keep our techs safe!
