Lending Library Materials

The Education Department at FSEC has many resources available for loan to Florida teachers and civic leaders. These materials are designed to foster an understanding of solar and renewable energy technologies in a hands-on fashion. Students learn about these technologies by experimentation.

How to obtain materials:
Materials from the lending library are only available to schools and organizations in the state of Florida. A small lending fee to cover shipping and handling, and a signed statement of responsibility are required at the time of shipment. The availability of kits varies. It is suggested that kits be reserved several months in advance of their intended dates of usage.

For questions, or for availability of specific resource material, please call Penny Hall. Please state which kit(s) you are interested in and give a range of dates for their usage. Call 321-638-1018, or click here to contact Penny Hall.
