An educator is someone who regularly instructs classes/workshops in formal and/or informal learning environments.
SparkFun Electronics offers an Educator Discount that reduces the cost of most items by 20%. This discount does not apply to taxes and shipping, and does not combine with our bulk item discount. Sales tax is only charged within the state of Colorado. To be considered tax exempt, you must provide SparkFun Electronics a copy of your tax exempt certificate.
In return for this benefit, the Department of Education asks that you send material such as stories, photos and/or videos about the SparkFun parts you’ve been using in your projects so we can share this information with the community! This is SparkFun’s way of knowing that you are staying involved with us.
NOTE: We are proud to announce the addition of three new Education Program Managers to our SparkFun team. With the addition of Education Program Managers, the current 20 percent educator discount will be replaced by a more flexible discounting program. Though the current discount program ends on Dec. 31, 2016, quotes and proposals made in 2016 will be honored through Jan. 31, 2017. You can still apply for the educator discount until Dec. 30, 2016.
