Obtaining Materials and Supplies

Once you know the date, location, size, and nature of your workshop audience, you will want to be sure that the appropriate materials will be available. Following is ordering information for materials used in Project 2061 workshops.


Copies of Science for All Americans, Benchmarks for Science Literacy, and Benchmarks on Disk are available from Oxford University Press. Orders should be placed at least four weeks before the workshop date and appropriate arrangements should be made to receive the materials, store them, and deliver them to the workshop site. Depending on the quantity ordered, there may be numerous, heavy boxes, and sponsors should be prepared in advance. Orders can be placed by mail or phone:
