Welcome! The SwISTEM Equipment Lending Service and the Crane STEM Outreach Lending Service lends a large assortment of laboratory equipment and math/ science manipulatives to educators in southwest Indiana. We currently have over 1,000 pieces of equipment available for lending to schools and other educational organizations through our main office and through a partnership with the Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center's STEM Outreach Team. Pick-up and delivery are available to all of the counties in the green University of Southern Indiana region located on the map. Educators located in the yellow Crane region need to pick-up and return borrowed materials to the Crane STEM Outreach Office in Odon, Indiana. The Crane STEM Outreach Team is also open to servicing counties outside of the yellow region on the map provided that patrons are willing to pick-up and return equipment in a timely fashion. Both services are entirely free! Click the links below to learn more about equipment available in each region.
