Product Description:

Although this kit does include the popular "isolate DNA from a fruit or vegetable" experiment, it also contains manipulatives and activities that explore Mendel's Rules of Heredity, cell structure, chromosomes, DNA structure and duplication, codons and amino acids, and bacterial growth as it is related to genetic engineering. In fact, it's a great accompaniment to any textbook unit or stand-alone course on genetics. The 48-page experiment manual is at the heart of the kit, and includes all of the activity procedures, explanations, and a fun background story about bank robbers who leave drops of blood and cigarettes at the scene of the crime. There are 20 experiments or activities in all, although some of them are parts of the same multi-phase project. The kit kicks off with the showstopper project, isolating DNA from a tomato. Now that young researchers have "seen" and "touched" actual DNA, they expand their knowledge into genetics by exploring the rules of heredity with colored chips and a Punnett Square, organize chromosome cards into pairs, build a DNA model, show how DNA duplication works using their model, determining all possible base combinations, understanding genetic fingerprinting as used in solving crimes, and growing bacteria. All special materials are included, and household items that are also required are printed in italics in each experiment. Quiz questions are found throughout the booklet, camouflaged behind a red pattern, and a red transparent sheet is included to view the answers. With this kit's detailed explanations and specialized equipment, this is an excellent companion to learning about genetics. Jess

We are using this to supplement our biology class since our son is extremely squeamish about the human body.

Will this test work for siblings?

BEST ANSWER: Hi. We used this for homeschooling one child and really liked it. But it could be done as a group as everyone observes the experiments together.
