Make sure to check the appropriate Bio-Box Calendar. Each has its title above it. The events labeled as "busy" mean that the Bio-Box is already scheduled at that time.
The purpose of the Bio-Box is to provide educators with museum resources when a field trip is not a practical option. BYU biology students and teachers created the Bio-Boxes to help in-service teachers explain difficult biological concepts using hands-on resources from the museum. The ideas and activities in the Bio-Boxes align with the USOE Biology guidelines. These boxes are the culmination of many months of hard work and contain many irreplaceable museum materials. The following are policy for use of this resource:
Delivery and pick-up service to schools in Utah County for $35.
Without delivery service, use of the Bio-boxes is free, but there is a $25.00 refundable security deposit.
Damages not attributed to normal wear and tear will be deducted from the deposit
Check-out period is for two weeks
$5 per day late fee after the the designated due date
When returning the Bio-Box, an appointment must be set up to review the contents of the Bio-Box with a museum employee.
Teachers are expected to check through the inventory for lost of damaged items before returning the Bio-Box to the museum.
Teachers should fill out a general feedback form
to help us know how to improve the various bio-box activities.
