Educational and Classroom Resources Catalog

Education is the primary goal of the Schingoethe Center. Several forms of educational resources help us share knowledge of Native American Culture with the public.

  • Discovery Boxes: 
    These are portable containers that include educational artifacts, background material, and suggested activities on  topics of Native American culture. Schools and other educational organizations may check out Discovery Boxes for a two-week period for a fee of $12.00 per box (except for dwellings boxes which are $25.00 per box). To schedule a Discovery Box, call (630) 844-7843 or click here to go to the Online Order Form.
  • Traveling Exhibits:  
    We are currently in the process of developing new traveling exhibits. Please check back for updates.
