Equipment Loan Program

Through funds made available through this Math-Science Partnership program we have purchase classroom sets of equipment that will allow students to conduct scientific and mathematical explorations using the latest technologies - Vernier Data Loggers, sensors and BioRad molecular biology equipment. Teachers who have completed a CofC MSP course which used the equipment or who have been trained to use the equipment at a MSP in-service workshop can check out a classroom set for use in their classrooms for up to 2-weeks.   Below is a list of equipment that is available.  If you are interested in helping  us to schedule a workshop at your school or district to learn how to use this equipment and get ideas for inquiry-based/exploratory activities that you can incorporate in your classroom, please contact your district coordinator or the project directors.

If you are interested in checking out equipment, review and complete the following forms and return them via email to Dr. John Peters (
Physics/Physical Science

We also have access to a number of the publications which Vernier publishes which contain labs and activities.  These can be checked out on a short term basis.  Contact your school or school district's lead teacher if you are interested in reviewing any of these materials.
Lead Teachers or School Coordinators in each school district will have access to a data logger and many of the most commonly used probes.  Contact your district or school;s Lead Teacher/Coordinator if you would like to borrow these units to practice with them before implementing an activity in the classroom.

This project is supported by a grant from the SC State Department of Education's Math Science Partnership Program.
