HOW IT WORKS
“The SLL team has put together an innovative model that empowers teachers to leverage quality resources… truly something that every under-resourced school district needs.” – Daniel Applewhite, Propeller
Equipment LENDING CO-OP
STEM Library Lab uses a library model that allows schools to purchase an affordable annual membership determined by student enrollment and grade level. Membership grants teachers unlimited borrowing from our equipment library valued at over $120,000, as well as access to lesson plans, training, and one-on-one support sessions with our staff.
It all starts with a great idea!
Teachers search and reserve equipment through our website, as well as explore lesson plans.
STEM Library Lab staff packages the equipment and prepares associated trainings.
The teacher picks up their equipment order, puts it to use in their classroom, and returns it when the lesson is done.
Library Lab staff performs routine maintenance, so the equipment is ready for use in the next classroom.
