GEMS Associates/Leaders

The GEMS site is stocked with 48 kits for you to check out for Professional Development purposes, and 30 kits for classroom use with students.  Due to the generosity of the Nevada Department of Education and the creativity of WNC we have all of the kits currently available from Carolina Biological for PDC use.  Please note the two attached inventories when placing an order. The cost of checking out each kit will be nominal $20.00  charge for each four week period plus any shipping involved.  The library of 80 GEMS guides are available for you to check out from Gleason PDC in Carson City at no charge, except shipping if needed for out of the area teachers.  You may check out up to three guides at a time.

Please give me at least a weeks notice before you need a kit, as we have no paid employees and the Associates help me with checkout. Those who live within driving distance of Carson City may send in the order form by fax, e-mail or snail mail, and pick up their kits directly from the Gleason professional Center on Musser Street.


Please check the inventory sheet that is included with each kit, and attach a note for items that were used and need to be restocked.  As we are a “volunteer” GEMS Site this will really save restock time on our end.  Shipping will be your responsibility.  Some inexpensive items may need to be purchased locally (vinegar, oil, etc.) that add a great deal to the weight of the kit.  Please check the inventory sheet inside the kit for contents that need to be acquired in your area.
