Grade 2 and up. Using live bessbugs and petri plate "sleds," students observe and quantify the pulling power of a bessbug. A great hands-on activity for the classroom, students gather data by weighing objects and calculating the pulling power of the bessbug. Ideal for individual science projects, demonstrations, or up to 8 students working in pairs. Kit includes 4 bessbugs, petri plates, string, tape, and 200 "pennyweight" washers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good idea but.... I loved the idea of doing this lab, and planned to use it in a training with teachers so they could repeat it with students. However with the live animal shipping costs it is very expensive for one lab. Also, the insects cannot be reared in captivity, so the expense would need to be incurred each year. The kit also contains only one Petri dish, so buying extras to do more than one experiment at a time in a class is necessary.
