Other options for schools:
Sensors Loan Program for K-12 Teachers
K-12 teachers can borrow up to 15 sensors for 3 weeks. The purpose for the loan program is so that teachers can provide a hands-on learning opportunity for all students. With a set of 15 sensors in a computer laboratory, two students can work together to understand earthquake science with the accelerometer. These sensors are subsidized by other purchases and gifts to the Quake-Catcher Network. These sensors will only be shipped if a valid US K-12 school address is provided. Please fill out the online form. The loan is free, all you have to do is pay for the return postage of about $10.35.
