DNA Depot

The kids had an opportunity to do some hands-on DNA extraction over the summer, thanks to the folks who developed these home study kits for homeschoolers. From their website:

DNA Depot [TM] is committed to providing safe, innovative and affordable life science educational resources for students in grades 5 to 8, in home schooling and in self-directed learning.

The products are designed to highlight major scientific concepts without the use of expensive reagents and equipment. All experiments are designed and tested by teachers, parents and scientific educational consultants. The products consist of background information, safety recommendations and procedures. Detailed safety information are provided on the website or upon request. DNA Depot experiments require adult or parental supervision and guidance.
