Advanced - For experienced high school and college classes; requires some technical skill.

For a class of 30. Developed by Donna Bozzone, Saint Michael's College. With this kit, students design experiments to test the ability of Physarum to respond to various chemical stimuli. P. polycephalum, a plasmodial slime mold, is an excellent organism for exploring chemotaxis. Many microorganisms, and certain specialized cells in complex multicellular organisms, respond to chemical cues and either move toward or away from chemical signals. With teacher instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a Science Fair Project My daughter repurposed this kit for a simpler set of experiments involving the effect of environmental conditions on slime mold growth and development for an 8th Grade science fair project. While the kit did contain more petri dishes and agar than she needed, we now have a great set of supplies for future culturing experiments (and may even try and keep the P. polycephalum that was delivered--named Lenny--alive for the forseeable future via continuing transplants to new media.
