For example, let's say we'd like to reserve the Respiratory System.

"Availability" will show you if the item is available, at the very bottom of the page.





"More details" will show more information about the item as well as its availability, which is shown below.

So for our example, we would like to reserve the respiratory system from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm today. Click on the green square that aligns with 1:00pm.

Select 3 pm and "Add to cart" (if you'd like to continue browsing) or "Add to cart & Checkout" (if you're ready to checkout now).


After adding your item(s) to your cart and going to Checkout, the next page will look similar to the one below.

continue booking


After confirming that the item, date, and time are correct and after reading through the terms and conditions, click on "Continue" (or if you would like to add more items, select "Add another booking").

On the next page, enter your name, your SC4 email address, and what class you're using the item for (this question is not required). Then select " Submit my Booking".
