(in stock)


Beginning—Easy to perform; requires little or no prior knowledge.
The DNA Keepsake, an expression of life's eternal molecule
How often do you engage your students by helping them create something truly unique and personal? Take them on a journey of self-discovery in the molecular world with this 1-station kit. It uses safe, simple materials that enable students to extract their own DNA—and have it appear right before their eyes! Transfer the DNA to the glass vial, and together with the beautiful pewter double helix pendant, it becomes a piece of jewelry—and more. It's also an expression of an individual's personal genetic makeup for all to appreciate. Foster your students' curiosity and wonder with this one-of-a-kind experience. Kit includes enough materials to create 1 DNA Keepsake, teacher's manual, student guide, and 1-year access to digital resources. Note: This kit requires students to use samples of their own saliva. Please check your school's policy regarding the use of bodily fluids in the classroom.
