Welcome!  The SwISTEM Resource Lending Service lends a large assortment of laboratory equipment and math/ science manipulatives to educators in a 17 county area in southwest Indiana. We currently have over 1,000 pieces of equipment available for lending to schools and other educational organizations.   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 will need to pick-up and return their materials to the Crane STEM Outreach Office in Odon, Indiana.  Both services are entirely free!

How do I use this free service?

Our Procedures page outlines how you can bring this STEM equipment to your classroom.  An equipment list is also available with in-depth descriptions and photographs.
