Equipment Lending Service

The SwISTEM Equipment Lending Service lends a large assortment of laboratory equipment and math/ science manipulatives to educators in southwest Indiana, Henderson County in Kentucky, and Gallatin and White Counties in Illinois. We currently have over 1,000 pieces of equipment available, and we are eager to help you develop creative ways in which you can keep your students actively engaged in the STEM disciplines. Pick-up and delivery are available to all of the counties in the highlighted region located on the map, and this service is entirely free!  We deliver to your school or organization, and you can borrow materials for a 2-week lending period.  We also have many curriculum guides for our resources, so you don't have to be an expert in a particular STEM area to utilize our service.
