About Fungi in a box

Freakishly Frightening Fungi From Tasmania!

Tasmanian fungi in a box

The Freakishly Frightening Fungi From Tasmania kit was initially created for the Museum in a Box worldwide pilot project in 2019. The pilot project was to test a new science educational product, 'the box', and to see how it was used by a range of artists, educators and organisations. 

These same cards and soundtracks from the project are now freely available for non-commercial use by individuals and community groups to download and the box is not needed for this.

Schools, museums and libraries around the world currently use the innovative "box" as part of STEM learning activities and for innovative, fun and interactive displays. The "box" contains a speaker, WIFI and a Raspberry Pi computer to read near-field communication (NFC) tags. Media are connected to the tags and played using the box. 

Let's create a box!

Would your school or organisation like to create your own box?

Everyone can use the box from ages 6+, and is a fun and engaging way to explore STEM subjects in the school curriculum. See examples of schools and organisations using the box

Why use the 'box'?

Creating a collection for the box supports important traditional and digital literacy skills, collaboration skills and competencies across STEM areas. Participants learn skills in design, planning, recording audio files, creating digital 2D/3D images, understanding and connecting the NFC tags to the objects, & 3D printing as they create their collections for the box. The process of creating a collection and deciding what to talk about is an innovative hands-on way to facilitate deeper learning of any subject!
