We typically include extra supplies to repeat some of the experiments a few times. Most of the tools are reusable – like the real microscope! If your kids would prefer to work independently, then individual boxes are suggested.
Yes, you can read about organisms, look at a model, or see living animals at a zoo …but to really know more about them you need to hold them in your hand and take a peek inside. You get to observe starfish tube feet, see the air bladder of a fish, see a real heart valve, etc. Now we know some of you are saying “no way – not me”, but this is consistently the highlight of many BioBoxes, even for those initially apprehensive! There’s a better understanding and increased appreciation for life when you get the chance to see them up close; however, we respect your values and are working on ways to substitute optional models for dissection upon request.
All new subscriptions start with The Microscopic World box which includes your very own microscope to be used with all following BioBoxes.
You may pause or cancel any time up until your box has shipped each month by going through your online account.
