New Life For Old Equipment

One scientist's trash may be a student's treasure. That's what the Office of Science Education is finding out in its new Resource Program, which collects outdated scientific equipment from NIH labs to use in educational outreach. This equipment will be part of the teaching tools used by NIH scientists who volunteer to go into the classroom and work with students and teachers in grades K-12. Items that are in particular demand are microscopes, mini-gel boxes, power sources, small centrifuges, balances, and glassware. The equipment should be in working condition.
