If you are looking for project consider the following:
Short duration projects are ones where you will need lots of culture at the start, and will use the culture up as part of the project. Lots of algae torture (do not worry, they do not scream).
The theme for many of these is to observe a quantifiable change over time.
Students will use the scientific method to learn about the importance of algae in aquatic systems: the process of photosynthesis, algae's role in the food web, algae's sensitivity to water quality, and algae's impact on water quality through events like harmful algal blooms (HABs). This lesson offers endless opportunities for discussions on topics like nutrient acquisition, effects of climate change, human impacts and nutrient pollution, dead zones and HAB’s, aquaculture, resource limitations, trophic transfers, predator prey interactions, and much more.

This kit is the favorite of my son's teacher, it's a great way to bring Brainy Briny to the classroom. It has both a flask for growing algae and a flask for growing brine shrimp. Somewhat of an 'n' of one experiment with and without the brine shrimp.
This kit is designed to demonstrate algae culture and zooplankton grazing.
$ 27.95This is an Algae Research Supply Spirulina Harvesting screen. It has been specifically engineered to separate colonies of spirulina from water. Videos of this device can be seen on our youtube channel- (https://youtu.be/LTdGdRQPBeU) This can be used as a sieve for projects. It is constructed out to PVC and polypropylene screen and is 35 uM in mesh size. View full product details
Algae survey kit includes 1.5 ml culture and culture booklet:
Our scientists have been working with algae for over a decade. This is a premium culture set that is very well taken care of. It is robust and will perform in your laboratory or classroom.
This is a kit that explores if YOUR local water could have an algae bloom.
Hi Teachers, Students, and Parents, This lesson plan and experiment kit is an empirical method to test if your local body of water will have an algae bloom. It contains a detailed four-page lesson plan with experiment instructions. Also included are liquid nutrients (sodium nitrate, sodium phosphate, and a complete algae nutrient mixture) you need to supply household bleach. The experiment involves collecting water from a pond or lake near you, then dividing it into 5 different treatments. You will use plastic drinking water bottles as your culture flasks. The treatments for this kit are a positive-control (algae culture), negative-control (chlorine bleach), test for nitrogen limitation (sodium nitrate), and test for phosphate limitation (sodium phosphate). The test can be repeated many times to get replication. We include a secchi stick, so that you can quantify the algae growth, using Beer-Lambers law. (You can see a video of the secchi-stick on Algae Research Supply's You Tube channel). Soon you can see a video of this product also.
This is kit designed to give the student the tools to do a science project. It includes
This kit is good for two groups where an n=4 is used: one treatment and one control. Lots of folks use this for science fair projects. Sometimes they also get some extra culture Nannochloropsis) if they are short on time and want to explore different ways to KILL algae. This is a good kit to start out with if you are curious about algae experiments.View full product details
We want you to have multiple groups do the project, so our price is discounted with purchases of more than one.
This is the most simple manifestation of the kit, no frills, you provide the water and container. It is designed for use themselves or in small groups.
Each student/group will receive
Kits are adjustable for classroom needs!View full product details
We think that this kit is probably the coolest thing since the moon landing. We have made and remade, tested, retested and reformulated everything... fifteen times (not kidding). You can use this with our culture flasks or any other water holding container you can find.
The kit is designed to use a 500mL bottle of drinking water. You can grow the algae in the bottle, or use a separate container.
Each one of these kits includes:
Start the algae culture first and let it establish itself in the culture vessel. After a few days the culture will look more green, then add in the brine shrimp cysts. In a couple days they will hatch. The algae and Brainy Briny's can live for years without feeding if the light and temperature conditions are good.View full product details
$ 2.00The Secchi Stick is a simple analytical device to determine optical density of a liquid. The depth at which the disk is no longer visible is taken as a measure of the transparency of the water. This measure is known as the Secchi depth and is related to water turbidity. We have a video on it's operation on youtube. View full product details
$ 1.50 $ 3.00This is our signature 50mL culture flask. It is great for growing algae or other microbes. It comes sterilized to our warehouse in packs of 10. The packing is opened for individual sale, but the flask is unopened so it can be considered sterile (but not by FDA standards). View full product details
