Jameco Offers Educators Unique Kitting Program



Belmont, CA –Jameco Electronics introduced its Design-Your-Own Educational Kit Program, allowing educators to improve their ability to supply students with electronic kits.

Educators build the kit on Jameco's website, can include their own course materials with the kit and Jameco will sell it as a kit directly to students or the educational institution. The result is a solution that creates a single part number at a price below the sum of the individual component pricing. Jameco also has the ability to rebate educators based upon reaching sales milestones of kits designed for their classes or other educational institutions around the world.

"We've always offered kitting services for educators," said Greg Harris, Vice President of Marketing for Jameco Electronics. "We are now making it easier and less expensive for educators to bundle components for class projects and curricula."

Instructions for creating class kits are available on the Jameco website.
