Kidzu Discovery Boxes

Kidzu Discovery Boxes are now available for rental! Each of our 4 Discovery Boxes include grade-specific, curricularly aligned STEM activities designed to be done outdoors. Each Discovery Box includes a facilitator guide with lesson plans and all the materials needed to complete each activity. If you are educating in a virtual setting, we are happy to provide our facilitator guides for download to be adapted to meet your students’ needs.  If you are in-person with your students, we would love to work with you to utilize our discovery boxes for an adapted classroom “field trip”. Our Field Trip Coordinator is always available to help modify the activities to fit the needs of your class.

The cost to rent our Discovery Box materials and curriculum is $50 per classroomAdditional per-student costs can be calculated if you are interested in Kidzu providing individual student materials for the activities you are interested in. Contact programs@kidzuchildrensmuseum.org for further assistance calculating exact per-student costs.
