Material Loan

S’Cool LAB’s scientifico-educatif material available for education & outreach activities by CERN Personnel only

S’Cool LAB has many different scientific instruments and education materials that are used for our official teacher and student programmes. When they are not needed, we are happy to loan them. The list of available materials can be found below.

If you would like to use any of them for an education or outreach event, please fill out our material rental request on the CERN Service Portal. The loan is free of charge. Please note that our own programmes have priority, therefore, we cannot guarantee the availability of the materials for your event.

We expect you to pick up and return the materials at S’Cool LAB (143/R-003).
