One of the most exciting resources for educators are The Center's revamped cultural trunks. LAS offers 10 trunks on a variety of different countries and regions in Latin America. Each trunk includes a collection of musical instruments, videos, books, maps, and country-specific information and artifacts for a given country, region, or topic. Trunks can be used as learning tools or for displays during international fairs. Trunks are available for check-out and are mailed directly to your school with free shipping and handling.
Trunks may be reserved in advance by contacting the Center and can be checked-out for a period of two weeks, which includes the time required for shipping. The Center of Latin American Studies will cover all shipping costs. Trunks are sent via FedEx.
To request a trunk, please review the instructions and fill out:
1) A material request form
2) A user agreement form (only for new users)
All forms and requests should be emailed or faxed to the
Center of Latin American Studies
