How to Get the Kits
To meet the varied needs of community groups, we offer three ways to purchase the CEH kits:
- Purchase ready-made, individual kits (Assembled Kits). Each assembled kit has materials to be shared by 2 participants.
- Purchase bulk kit materials to assembled yourself (Pack of 10 Unassembled Kits)
- Purchase refill materials to re-use kits that you already have (10 Kit Refill Packs)
In each case, there is a discount when you order a larger number of kits.
If you prefer to make your own CEH kits, we will provide kit documents, lists of materials, and instructions, on request at no cost. Just send an email to [email protected] to request the CEH kit documents. You will need to purchase your own materials to make the kits.
