DOE opens lab equipment acquisition program to high schools and middle schools
U.S. high schools and middle schools are now eligible to participate in the Department of Energy Energy-Related Laboratory Equipment (ERLE) program. For 32 years this program has enabled institutions of higher education to acquire hundreds of millions of dollars in high quality surplus laboratory equipment from the Department's National Laboratories. Schools may acquire equipment by reviewing the available equipment list at the DOE ERLE website and completing an electronic application form. The ERLE website is hosted by the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI).
