  • Casper Fish™ Genetics Your students will probably never forget the genetics concepts they learn using this transparent zebra fish. Discover how the Casper Fish™—available exclusively from Carolina—was developed and the genetics behind the research that made it happen. View »
  • Population Genetics and Evolution: Asking the Right Questions AP® Biology: It’s a question of shifting population genetics! Apply the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium model with Wisconsin Fast Plants® and independent student research. See a sample student question sheet from our featured kit’s activities. View »
  • Plant Biodiversity Field Activity This field activity introduces students to biodiversity through the study of plants and animals in a designated area. But here’s the twist—instead of using a quadrat to designate the area of study, students use a Hula Hoop® instead. View »
  • Using Planarian Reproduction as a Path to Hands-On Inquiry Learning When can you divide something and have 2 whole "somethings" left? To answer that question, engage your class with a study of how planarians regenerate when split into anterior and posterior halves. Students design and execute an experiment about this reproductive strategy. View »
  • Characteristics and Behavior of Owls Learn about owl sight, hearing, feet and talons, flight, and feathers here. View »
  • Carolina's Genetic Corn: Part 1-Pollination In this video, we show you the various varieties of genetically modified corn, and do controlled pollinations. This corn is used in the high school and college level to teach genetics. View »
  • How DNA is Packaged (DNALC Video) DNA contains all of the genetic code for a living organism, but how does all that information fit in such a tiny package. This 3D animation will show you how a chromosome consisting of one continuous thread-like molecule of DNA coils up and contains the buidling blocks of life. View »
  • It's Summer Break but My Classroom Is Alive! It’s the end of the school year and your classroom is filled with critters in your aquarium, terrarium, or petri dishes. What do you do with them over summer break? View »
  • Strawberry DNA Extraction Introduce students to DNA with this activity. A discussion of how this DNA extraction procedure works might also touch on the plant cell wall, the cell membrane, and DNA's lack of solubility in ethanol. Includes materials list and step-by-step instructions. View »
  • Introduction to Photosynthesis Using Coleus Plants The simple exercises that students perform in this lab demonstrate that plants produce glucose through photosynthesis, that plants convert at least some of the glucose to starch, and that sunlight is a critical factor in photosynthesis. View »
  • DNA Microarray Simulation What if you could affordably engage students in a simplified version of DNA microarray analysis? Students will learn about a new and powerful genomics method while learning basic and applied biology. View »
  • Investigating Habitat Preferences with Millipedes In this investigation, students determine millipedes’ preference for a bright or a dark environment by giving the organisms a choice between a clear chamber and a black chamber. View »
