Beaty Biodiversity Museum – Beaty Boxes Fund

animal bones and artifacts in open individual black boxes.

Help spark scientific curiosity through hands-on biodiversity outreach kits

The award-winning Beaty Boxes have been bringing the natural world to classrooms and places of learning since 2016. Filled with activities, touchable specimens and other unique biological objects from the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, these outreach kits connect educators and students with the museum’s unique biological collections. Schools, community centres, libraries, home-learners, and other groups can book a box and share it with other classes in their school or institutions in their immediate area. A cost-effective way to spark curiosity and discussion around biodiversity, the popular Beaty Boxes pique scientific inquiry and enhance the student learning experience.

Your gift will help the program continue to bring biodiversity education to the community.
