What’s new at BIOSE ?


BIOSE is a young non-profit organization but we have been supporting science education for more than five years.


Did you know that our “Critters in the Classroom” program, which uses live animals from northern Kentucky to teach science concepts, has been going to schools since early 2005?


In 2004, our “GEAR UP Science Camp” won the Collaboration Award presented by Forward/Quest and the Northern Kentucky Council of Partners.

Did you know . . .


mother giraffes give birth standing up?


For a giraffe, the risk of being killed by a lion is so great that giraffes do not lie down to sleep or give birth.  A lion is quick enough to kill a giraffe before it can stand up.


So, baby giraffes enter the world with a SIX FOOT fall !


Thud !
