Item # 180954 Exclusive This product is exclusive to Carolina Biological Supply. With Digital This kit includes 1-year access to digital resources including videos, digital teacher’s manuals, printable student guides, interactive lessons, editable assessment questions, and more.

Build excitement around water distillation by allowing students to design, construct, and test their own water distillation apparatus. Students gain hands-on experience with evaporation and distillation while using an incandescent light source to model solar energy. They also gain real-world experience using distillation to remove contaminants (salt) from water. Students compete to produce the most contaminant-free water in a 24-hr period. Kit equips 30 students working in pairs.
