Beginning - Easy to perform; requires little or no prior knowledge.

A fun and fascinating laboratory activity not only shows students how to isolate human genomic DNA, it lets them create DNA necklaces they can actually wear. Students extract DNA by lysing their cheek cell sample, then watch as wispy white strands of their own DNA precipitate out of a solution containing ethanol. After transferring their DNA to plastic microcentrifuge tubes, students fashion the tubes into DNA pendant necklaces using colorful string. This is one easy lab activity that really gets your students talking about DNA and science!

Classroom Kit includes enough materials for 32 students.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product all inclusive learning and fun. This product was everything I hoped it would be. My elementary students enjoyed being able to see their own DNA and proudly wore it around the school. It was the highlight of our CSI study. I paid $25 per student, last year, to do this SIMPLE experiment at a local University's lab center. Tjis year I chose to do this much more affordable option and got the exact same results. Super simple, super affordable, super fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved it in school My old 11th grade biology teacher got these for us while we were learning about DNA and RNA and this was probably one the best experiments we've done. 4 years later and now I'm thinking about buying it for myself and some friends for fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hands on activity This product was easy for the students to follow the directions and extract their DNA and create a necklace of their DNA. Instructions were straight forward and the students enjoyed the hands on aspect of this activity

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quick, fun and informative lab! I love this lab. I use it with my freshmen in Biology. It is easy to set up and use. Best of all the students are able to see their results very quickly. The lab questions are also great. I've had students say this was their favorite lab in the course! I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The DNA Necklace Classroom Kit was an awesome engaging activity that got the students talking about DNA. The DNA Necklace Classroom Kit laboratory created an awesome DNA visual. When studying genetics and discussing DNA students often get overwhelmed. This activity allowed the students to navigate through a hands on activity that allowed for a visual reinforcement of what was taught in class. It really got the kids talking about DNA and I would recommend this kit to other science teachers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and Engaging Lab Activity The students had a blast extracting their own DNA and then getting to make it into a necklace they can walk out and wear! Easy to use! Fun! and gets kids excited about DNA. There are just 2 smalls cons: 1. the necklace containers didn't always stay shut...you might want to add a little drop of glue so they don't pop open later, 2. My classes always have at least 35 students (not 32). In terms of cost, $50 each is a little costly, especially if you have multiple sections, but if you can scrape up the money, it is really fun.
