Traveling Education Green Boxes

Great Basin National Park Foundation funds educational science kits that can be checked out by educators throughout the state of Nevada in partnership with Desert Research Institute.

While using the Great Basin Green Box, students learn that the Great Basin is home to distinctive ecosystems, with unique geological and watershed features.

A Great Basin Green Box contains all the consumable and non-consumable materials required to teach four science statndard aligned lessons about the biosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere, and atmosphere.

The Green Box program reaches approximately 1,500 Nevadan elementary school students each year.
