    Skeleton in a Box kits started in 2003 when Tim Lundt, science teacher at Burchell High School received a grant from Alaska Department of Fish and Game to create 6 portable kits ( 2 moose, 2 wolves and 2 black bears).  These kits have been articulated by hundreds of students over the years as a way to learn about Alaska wildlife, anatomy  and the differences between animals.   Since then students at Mat-Su Career & Technical HS created a third moose kit, lynx kit and now 2 wood bison kits.
