UCL Museums & Collections have already developed a range of Loan Boxes consisting of objects from the Grant Museum of Zoology, Geology Collections and Archaeology Collections . Schools can borrow these free of charge. They have been designed to support the National Curriculum at Key Stages 2-4, and have proved a popular resource with local schools.
