Are you looking for a way to bring the Museum to your classroom? Our loan kit program may be your answer! Our discovery kits contains materials such as: science equipment, specimens, artifacts, models and suggested activities for a wide variety of ages. These kits are designed for hands-on learning and exploration!
Two Great Options
Borrow a kit for two weeks. You must pick up and drop off the kit at the Museum.
A Museum educator will deliver the kit to your classroom and introduce your students to its content through an in-class program, after which you may keep the kit for up to 2 weeks. You are responsible for returning the kit to the Museum. Cost is $75 per kit plus $80 per program.
