I’m a teacher, and I’d like to use FieldKit in my classroom, but funds are super limited. Is there a discount available for educators?

When will I receive my FieldKit order?

I’m concerned about leaving a FieldKit station out in the wilderness for long periods of time. Are they durable?
The FieldKit project came straight from expedition work in some of the most extreme environments in the world. We’ve worked to make sure that our case and components are as extremely durable. However, if you’re planning to deploy in a place that is ...
