About this event

Early Fall event for STEM educators!

Join us Sunday, October 2nd, 2022 at our Oakland warehouse for our Early Fall Give-Away. We invite all STEM educators to collect lab supplies and benchtop equipment, for your accredited school - at no cost to you.

Title I Teachers: Early Entry starting at 11 am is reserved exclusively for teachers from Title I K-12 schools.

All educators are welcome starting from 1 pm.

Educational nonprofits & community labs: Please email us at for pre-approval to participate in our Open Houses.

Rest assured we have LOTS of stock on hand! And have received many more items since our last Open House.


Only educators and academic researchers from accredited institutions and their assistants can register for the event.

  • All attendees must be pre-registered to attend. Ticketing closes on Friday, September 30th at 5 pm.
  • You may bring one assistant with you, and they also need to register. They may register under your institution name if you arrive together.
  • If you register and then cannot make it, please cancel your ticket to allow room for another STEM educator.
  • All attendees must be from an accredited institution and must present an institution-issued photo ID or recent letter from your institution to check in.
  • Children under 13 years of age are not allowed due to safety requirements.
  • Please wear closed-toe shoes and dress appropriately for an industrial warehouse.
  • Facemasks are required inside the warehouse for everyone's protection.
  • The event gates will open at 10:30 am. Our site is located on a main road that cannot be blocked, therefore no entry or queue will be allowed before 10:30 am.
  • The warehouse will open at 11 am (for Title I Educators only) and everyone will be escorted in at the same time, so best to get there early to "get a good spot in line."
  • On-site parking is available at no cost, but may fill up.

Important Give-Away Guidelines

  • From 11 am until 1 pm, only Title I K-12 educators will be admitted. General admission for all educators will start at 1 pm.
  • REGISTRATION: On arrival, Check In at the Registration Table to have your institutional ID or a certification letter checked. You will also receive a Registration/Donation Acceptance Form that will need to be completed before leaving the event.
  • Please bring your own boxes, containers, and bags for collecting and packing out items. We have a limited number of rolling carts you can use while browsing; but feel free to bring your own.
  • This is a Sharing Economy event, so please limit the number of any specific items you gather to what you really need, in order to give others the opportunity to receive some as well.
  • On your Acceptance form, write down a list of items you have picked up, as well as their estimated value.
  • An area of the parking lot will be set aside for you to hold items while collecting additional ones.
  • CHECKOUT: Fully complete your form then return it to the Checkout Desk where your selected items will be checked against your list and then you will be signed out and free to leave.
