Discovering STEM Kits Policy & Procedures

KIT PICK-UP / DROP OFF:  Please call our main office number ((616) 331-2267) before you leave to pick up and drop off. This will allow us to be outside with your kits on carts waiting for you.

KIT REPLACEMENT POLICY: Kits are funded through grants, developed by faculty and assembled by staff. If for some reason a kit is damaged or lost, schools will be expected to pay for the replacement of kits. Typically, kits cost between $120 and $175. Please be respectful with kit handling and restocking. 

RESERVATION and SCHEDULING TIME FRAME. The Regional Math and Science Center works very hard to accommodate and service every reservation request, however the process of securing a date for use, pick up and drop off arrangements, and available RMSC staff to assist picking up and dropping off, can be complex. Because of the increase of Discovering STEM kit use, we must ask that you allow 5 - 7 business days to process a reservation request. This means you must reserve kits at least 1 week prior to use and all requests must go through Austin Phillips -
