Please read our equipment sanitation protocols in response to COVID. It is our priority to keep you safe, but also to not destroy our electronic equipment through improper cleaning.
This year we will need to talk to you before sending out a kit to make sure you get what you need. In addition to filling out the webform below, we ask that educators new to our kits have a consultation with one of our educators.
Transportation of kits: We offer two transportation options: You can either pick up (or return) the kits at the VEEP offices in Montpelier at no cost, or we can send them to most locations in Vermont (or have them picked up) via courier service or VEEP educator for an additional sliding scale delivery fee. Transportation in New Hampshire may be an additional fee. Not all Vermont locations are served by Vital Delivery Solutions, our courier service; we will brainstorm alternate transportation options with you if your school is a place that VDS does not go. The list of available Vermont Vital Delivery Solutions service locations can be found here and their New Hampshire locations here.
Fee: We ask schools to pay a small fee for the use of our kits to help us to maintain and restock the kits, as well as a fee for transportation if you are not picking up or dropping off the kit in Montpelier. These fees can be waived if your school does not have a budget for materials.
Customized kits: We are happy to modify our traditional kits to meet your curriculum or project needs, but we ask schools to pay an additional $30 surcharge to help us cover the extra time and materials. This fee can be waived if your school does not have a budget for materials. Please note that we might need some extra time to create the custom kit in addition to the two weeks.
Lost and damaged items: All kits come with a detailed itemized list of included materials. Please let us know immediately if any items are missing. You are expected to do an inventory of the kit you’ve borrowed before returning it to VEEP. We will bill for lost and damaged items. The cost of replacing consumable materials (items meant to be used up, like modeling clay and index cards) is included in the kit maintenance fee.
