Algae Research Supply: Algae and Zooplankton Education Kit

Algae and zooplankton can be used to help teach many lessons from the Next Generation Science Standards.  We have designed this kit to be used as the basic equipment you will need to do hands-on work in:

  • Photosynthesis
  • Respiration
  • Reproduction
  • Populations and communities
  • Experimental Design 
  • Energy and matter transfer through systems
  • many more...
