The Basics is the least-cost way to get algae and brine shrimp into your classroom. You will need to supply all your own culture-vessels (water bottles work well). We include all the materials you need to make 2.5L of culture and brine shrimp. The kit also includes 500mL of algae culture, so you can start off with a good chunk of algae culture to start your ecosystem.
|Culture Vessels||None Included|
|Salt, Nutrients, Brine Shrimp Cysts for 500mL||5x|
$ 175.00 $ 399.75
Complete kit for 35 students. Teaching and demonstration kit for instructor and students. The instructor can grow algae in a 600mL flask and brine shrimp in a separate 600mL flask. It includes a 50mL culture tube for each student to grow algae and later brine shrimp. It includes all the "basics" to grow algae and brine shrimp for a total of 17.5 L of media. The students can keep their flasks or the school can keep the labware for next years batch of new scientists!

The things in this kit will get your students all the materials they need to grow the microalgae spirulina. The kit does not contain 'cheat sheets' on how to win at the competition. However, we love answering nerdy algae questions. (email@example.com)
When thinking about this kit consider tests in the following areas:
Physical: Temperature, salinity, light...
Chemical: Nitrate, phosphate, CO2...
Biological: Biomass Density, growth rates, species diversity...

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.
