    Blood Spatter

    Bloodstain patterns at a crime scene can often yield a wealth of information. Part observational skills, part physics, and part mathematics, bloodstain pattern analysis may be used to help reconstruct as well as assist in supporting or refuting suspect/victim or other eyewitness accounts of the crime. Through a series of stations, students will examine the effects of several factors such as height, angle of impact, surface texture, and velocity before impact as they relate to the physical appearance of bloodstains.Kit contains enough materials for an entire class as well as Teachers Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters.

    Oil Spill Cleanup: Biological vs. PhysicalIn this activity, students will compare two methods of oil spill cleanup: biological and physical. Applying both a special blend of oil degrading microbes and a hydrocarbon encapsulating polymer to oil and examining the results, students will draw conclusions with regard to the effectiveness of each approach. The kit includes a specially prepared stained vegetable oil to simulate crude oil, eliminating any of the hazards and associated disposal costs of the real thing while still allowing the students to perform the procedures using real oil. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups. Teachers Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.

    New Life Science ProductsIntroduction to Mendelian GeneticsIn this activity, students can simulate Mendels work and determine patterns of inheritance. Using special chips and Innovating Sciences exclusive double dice, students will be able to simulate both monohybrid and dihybrid crosses. After the crosses, students will be able determine genotypic and phenotypic ratios for select traits and compare their values to the theoretical ideal values as put forth by Mendel. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups. Teachers Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.

    Testing Food For Nutrients

    This experiment will help students understand the importance of proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids in living organisms. They will learn to identify a positive test result for proteins using biuret reagent and examine the reaction between Benedicts reagent and a simple sugar.Using iodine/potassium iodide they will test for the presence of starch and test for the presence of lipids using a fat-soluble dye.

    Kit Includes:1 btl Iodine/potassium iodide solution, 25ml1 btl Biuret reagent, 25ml1 btl Benedicts solution, 25ml1 btl 1.0% Sudan III stain, 25ml1 btl Vegetable oil, 25ml10g Soluble starch10g Albumin10g Glucose

    Introduction To Microbiology: Bacterial Growth And Staining

    Bacteria, good and bad, is all around us. In this activity students will collect and grow bacteria and then learn techniques for studying the bacteria they have grown. They will perform a simple staining technique on bacterial cells to study the morphology. They will also perform a differential staining technique, Gram staining, on bacterial cells and determine if the collected bacteria are Gram-positive, Gram-negative, or both.

    New Life Science ProductsChromatography of Plant Pigments

    Chlorophyll is the most prevalent and well-known plant pigment related to photosynthesis. It is not, however, the only plant pigment necessary for photosynthesis to occur. Other pigments are involved in the process. These pigments are often overlooked as they tend to be masked by the abundance of the green pigment chlorophyll. In this activity, students will extract the various pigments from green plant material and separate the pigment using chromatography. Students will not only confirm the presence and learn the role of these hidden pigments but also learn about chromatography as a technique for separating molecules. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups and includes Teachers Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters.

    Green Fuel Cell: Energy From YeastThe transfer of electrons is part of the metabolic process in living organisms. However what if it were possible to capture, remove, and use some of these electrons? Could living organisms generate an electrical current? Students will set up a simple cell and, using the simple-to-grow and environmentally tolerant organism yeast as well as a special dye capable of entering yeast cells and collecting electrons, determine if the harvested electrons are capable of producing current in the cell and if so, how much current. This fun activity also serves as a great tool to stimulate discussion with regard to alternate energy sources. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups. Teachers Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
