For a class of 30. Students learn that yeast have many uses in our everyday lives, including the baking of bread and the production of alcoholic beverages. They observe the process by which these simple microorganisms produce energy from an ordinary item such as sugar. As the yeast cells feed on the sugar, carbon dioxide gas is released as a waste byproduct. Students observe the production of carbon dioxide by watching a balloon expand as it traps gas. When the balloon is removed from the test tube, students can smell the yeast container for the distinct odor of alcohol. Exercise can be completed in 1 class period. With teacher instructions. /!\ WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD—Children under 8 yrs. can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons. Adult supervision required. Keep uninflated balloons from children. Discard broken balloons at once. Kit includes: Fleischmann’s® Baker’s Dry Yeast 30 Balloons Sugar 30 Test Tubes 30 Pipets Autoclave Disposal Bag 155853 Per kit $65.95 Visually observe the genetics of fungi with this kit. Sordaria Genetics Kit Intermediate—Easy to perform; requires some basic training in microbiology. For a class of 30. Students culture the 3 Sordaria strains and then set up cross plates of wild type × mutant tan and wild type × mutant gray. The gene to centromere distance for tan and gray genes can then be calculated. Visit Carolina.com for complete lists of kit materials. Note: Order the kit with the perishable materials included or with a prepaid coupon to request perishables later at your convenience. Contact us or return the coupon to request delivery of perishable materials. Keep fungi cultures at room temperature; do not incubate or refrigerate. 155848 Kit (with prepaid coupon) Each $90.00 155848P Kit (with perishables) Each $90.00 Sordaria Genetics BioKit® Intermediate—Easy to perform; requires some basic training in microbiology. For a class of 30. Students cross the wild-type Sordaria strain with the mutant tan strain. Hybrid asci are produced containing 4 dark- and 4 light-colored ascospores. Students then use tetrad analysis to calculate the gene to centromere distance in map units for the mutant tan gene. The exercise requires about 10 to 14 days from setup of cross plates to completion. Visit Carolina.com for complete lists of kit materials.

This kit introduces students to the cycling of carbon from glucose to carbon dioxide in aerobic and anaerobic conditions. Students develop a model based on initial observations in an open system. After measuring the volume of carbon dioxide evolution over time in a closed system, and observing an indicator for the presence of oxygen, they graph the rate of carbon dioxide evolution and revise their models. Kit provides enough consumable materials for 2 class sections and includes a 1-year single teacher subscription to digital resources; visit Carolina.com for a complete list of kit materials. Supports NGSS and 3-dimensional instruction. Learn more about Carolina Kits 3D® labs at Carolina.com/3D. 202208 Per kit $62.00
