Rated 5 out of 5 by from reliable PTC paper We have used the other style of PTC paper (the one that comes in small tubes) and found these packs from Carolina to be much better. Students definitely knew if they could taste this paper (and it helps to have control strips, too).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for heredity activity I utilized the PTC test strips as a wrap-up to the genetics, heredity, probability section of my 7th grade science class. They worked quite hard through the concepts, to where it was a perfect time to do a "Tree of Genetics" activity (google search it and hopefully you'll find it). Very simple to do, easy to carry out, and most importantly...easy to understand. The kids enjoyed it (though not the taste...hahaha). Pretty simple to find this via an online search of PTC paper and what it is, how it's used, etc. Good product, fairly inexpensive (which is GREAT for schools on tight budgets), and simple to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great genetics or senses learning activity. I cut the strips into 3 too for the little mouths. This works for a lot of ages and is a good lesson about how we perceive the world differently thanks to our genes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SNPs rule This tool never fails to entertain and teach adults about genetic SNPs. It personalizes a difficult concept for some adult healthcare providers. Thanks for this simple, easy to use tool that assists me in teaching others about personalized medicine concepts in oncology.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY FUN PROJECT this was a great part of lessons, for all ages. It was amazing to see how each child reacted to the taste of these papers. Even though we are all alike, there is so much about us that is different. Even the younger kids were able to learn this.
