STEM Lending Library
The Oakley STEM Center is home to a valuable resource for your classroom, community organization, or family engagement events. The Lending Library is a collection of instructional equipment the STEM Center has been building up over the past several years.
There are thousands of items ranging from hand-held data acquisition units with sensors and probes, to math manipulatives, to LEGO Mindstorms.
The Oakley STEM Center is curating the largest catalog of classroom STEM equipment in the Upper Cumberland, and it is all available to our Lending Library Members. Formal educators, informal educators, and parents may all join the Lending Library.
