It’s free and easy to use! Educators can keep the kits up to 6 weeks and the set of 30 tablets up to 2 weeks. You can also reserve your kit to ensure access to materials in the future.
Make your request using this Google Checkout Form. You’ll get a confirmation of the request with details on how to pick it up. If you don’t hear back from the Hub within a day or two, please send a note of inquiry to email@example.com.
If you’re having trouble locating an item and we don’t have it, send a note our way. We’ll see if it’s within the six-Hub network.
