Fernbank Science Center offers instructional media kits and traveling exhibits that can be checked out for use at any Dekalb County School. The kits are not available to schools outside of Dekalb at this time. The media kits and exhibits have been designed as visual and instructional aids that support the Georgia Performance Standards. They may be ordered at any time during the school year--by the month, by the semester or for the entire year! Click on the images below to see what is available.
All requests for media kits should be given to the school Media Specialist who will forward the requests to Fernbank Science Center. The kits will be delivered by courier to the school for the Library/Media Specialist who will notify the teacher of their arrival. Materials should be returned to the Library Media Specialist in time to be shipped back to Fernbank Science Center by the specified return date.
Please download a media kit request form and submit by courier to "FSC Library." The delivery and return dates will be filled in by science center staff. A copy of the order will be returned as a confirmation. Orders should be received at Fernbank Science Center at least one week before the requested use date. Although written requests are preferred, telephone requests will be accepted for small orders (fewer than 3 items).
The success of our delivery schedule depends upon the prompt return of our kits, and return of all items in the kit. The kits will be delivered by the school system courier. Please have the kits you are returning ready on the designated day and placed at the location where the courier makes daily pick-ups and deliveries at your school. If you need a kit longer than the specified time, please call before the scheduled pick-up day. If the time cannot be extended, another time will be scheduled whenever possible.
If media kits are overdue, overdue notices will be sent to the Media Specialist for notification to the teacher.
