Classroom Science Connection Loan Kits

The Alf Museum offers a loan kit program for educators of students in grades 2 to 4: the Classroom Science Connections Loan Kit! The Loan Kit Program provides teachers with everything they need to bring paleontology to the classroom and to teach major scientific concepts using fossils. The Loan Kit Program gives teachers greater flexibility in how and when they teach paleontology in the classroom; study can range from one day to several days and can lead to extended exploration of the science of fossils and ancient life.

Fees: $25 per loan kit per week.
