Inquiries in Science®: Changing Over Time Kit

(in stock)


  • Observe antibiotic resistance in bacteria
  • Discover how evolutionary relationships influence organism classification
  • Practice microbiology lab techniques

Grades 9–12. Students explore the evidence of evolution through a variety of guided-inquiry activities. First, these investigations introduce modern technologies that aid in the classification of phylogenic relationships and explore the anatomical similarities between evolutionarily related organisms. Students then use their knowledge to design and conduct an experiment based on antibiotic resistance. Kit includes enough materials (such as classroom-friendly E. coli samples, ampicillin antibiotic, and materials to prepare Luria broth agar plates) for at least 30 students working in groups. Receive a FREE digital teacher's manual and student guide with kit purchase. Note: Kit includes voucher for delivery of perishable materials later at your convenience. Contact us or return the voucher to request delivery of perishables.
