Lending Library for PicoCrickets for 2010-2011

The Institute for Computing Education (ICE) at Georgia Tech has 36 PicoCricket kits that we can lend to schools. Each kit comes in a box with the parts sorted and counted. Each kit needs to be returned sorted and counted.. You will have to leave a deposit of $50.00 when you borrow up to 8 kits and a deposit of $100.00 when you borrow up to 15 kits. If the kits are not returned sorted and counted the deposit will be forfeited. Also, any missing or broken parts will be deducted from the deposit (except for small connectors). If you choose to leave the deposit in the form of a check make it payable to the "Georgia Institute of Technology". The check will be returned with a confimration letter if the kits are returned on time and in good condition (sorted, counted, and with all parts).

Each school can borrow up to 15 of the kits at a time for a time period up to 3 weeks during the school year. We use the kits in our summer camps and teacher workshops in the summer. The teacher is responsible for picking up the kits from Georgia Tech and for returning the kits to Georgia Tech unless other arrangements have been made. The sign-up is first come first served. Please send e-mail to Felicia (Auzla) Brewster ( 404-894-6858) and tell her your name, school name, the number of kits you wish to borrow, the date you will pick up the kits, and the date you will return the kits. You will receive e-mail letting you know if your request has been granted.
