Classroom Resources

Teachers can borrow natural history kits created from our scientific collections of birds, mammals, fish, invertebrates, reptiles and amphibians. Children can tour the Lunar and Planetary Sciences Laboratory, construct a mini Mars Lander, and do computer simulations as part of the MARS Gamma Ray Spectrometer Outreach Program. The Southern Arizona GEMS Education (SAGE) Center is also on campus. GEMS, Great Explorations in Math and Science, is a well-respected curriculum materials development and teacher professional development program. We have an extensive lending library of GEMS material available to K-12 teachers.
