The SAR Outreach Education program is proud to offer several new DVDs, CDs, and printed materials available to all educators, SAR members, and the general public for furthering the Society’s educational directives and outreach efforts. The addition of these resources will supplement the growing list of effective programs available to classrooms, state-level societies, and local chapters striving to achieve their education goals.

Any educational media and resource requests can be ordered using the specific form found on the following pages. Extra details or additional information about SAR Outreach Education can also be requested via email from Ms. Colleen Wilson. Your request will be noted, packaged, and mailed out to you as quickly as we can arrange the materials. Representatives of SAR Outreach Education may contact you in order clarify any details before shipping, though the information provided will otherwise be kept confidential.
