Getting Up Close and Personal with Biology

Your students’ first BioBox is an introduction to the biological world. After learning how to use their very own microscope, they’ll understand its importance as they discover cells, the building blocks of life. Using their new microscope skills, students will compare and contrast cells between different organisms, and they’ll even get an up-close look at cells from their own bodies. By the end, they’ll see just how amazing biology can be—it will prepare them for all the journeys our BioBoxes have to offer.

From this BioBox, your students will be able to answer some of biology’s most fundamental questions:

  • What is a microscope, and how does it help biologists?
  • How do you use a microscope?
  • What are cells, and what do they look like?
  • Are all cells the same?
