STEM CLASSIFIED: HAVE/NEED MATERIALS FOR FREE

 

Do you have any SCIENCE/TECHNOLOGY/ENGINEERING or Mathematics related materials or expertise you would like to give away?  Are you looking for something or need some specific help with a project?  Post here by contacting mjaeger@eou.edu   We will get you connected!

 

Test Tube Centrifuge, used. Place test tubes in pairs with precipitates and then decant liquid. Great for separating materials or layering materials of different densities.  @eou, can pick up or make arrangements to deliver.  Contact mjaeger@eou.edu

 

Need a pipette? We’ve got hundreds. Several sizes. Many brand new.

 

Cups with drain holes and catch tray. Perfect for growing seedlings.  Set of 64.

Propeller with rubber band. These are great for attaching to a wheeled vehicle and making a wind speeder. Two class sets.

Rotating apparatus. This is a wonderful set-up to teach students how to assess independent variables. A rubber band is twisted to set this wooden bar in rotation. Rivets are placed in different places on the bar. You can use this to explain rotational forces, moments,  and inertia as well. Two class sets.

Box of Brown glass storage bottles.  These were used store chemicals that are light sensitive. @eou, can pick up or make arrangements to deliver.  Contact mjaeger@eou.edu

 

Fancy funnels with valves–some 250 ml, some smaller.  About 20 count.  @eou, can pick up or make arrangements to deliver.  Contact mjaeger@eou.edu

Small box of tiny ceramic pans.  Used for roasting samples or making a small stew for a mouse family. @eou, can pick up or make arrangements to deliver.  Contact mjaeger@eou.edu

Lung volume measure (2).  These are fun as you can test students lung volume, chart versus height or weight or degree to which students talk out of turn in class.

9 Student Scales (see picture below), used lightly. @eou, can pick up or make arrangements to deliver.

Science Book Collection.  About 200 (30 feet of shelf space). Science texts dating from 1854. This was assembled as a research collection to study the changes in science curriculum in the 1900’s.  Some are classics with quite a few prior to 1930. Books in the photo are just a sample!  Contact mjaeger@eou.edu if interested. SOME CLAIMED BY BUTLER UNIVERSITY!   Still a number left.

Activity Books.  We have collected a number of activity books over the years. Some are ho-hum, but others have some real interesting potential for STEM curriculum.  Pictured below is just a sample.  You will have to come by and browse the collection!  Contact mjaeger@eou.edu if interested.

16 Pepsi bottles!  Great for making resonating chambers for sound experiments–or a vintage soda bottle collection!

 

 

10-12 Fire in the Pacific Northwest Curriculum Packages.  Donna Rainboth can tell you more.  drainbot@eou.edu

Hundreds of shell vials with plastic lids. Good for bugs and alcohol, samples, storage.

 

Crazy Glassware. Some cool Rube-Golberg chemistry stuff!

More things are being posted as we clean out the stock room!  Stay connected.
