Our education kits are designed to engage and educate students with hands-on activities focusing on animals here at the Zoo and around the world. Popular with both full-time teachers and parents who home school their children, these science kits include a teacher's manual, books, artifacts, activities, and more.
You may pick up the kits at the Zoo’s Hix Institute and borrow them for a two-week period.
Cost: $10 for the two week period.
