Product Description

Product Description

Dive into the world of DNA! The central concepts of molecular biology become child's play with this set of favorite experiments in the ScienceWiz DNA kit. Extract DNA from a fruit, probe and spool real DNA, build a double helix, solve a chromosome puzzle, ask is it a boy or a girl?, do gene analysis, extract your own DNA and make forgery proof DNA ink - all in with one kit. WOW!

Step-by-step, highly visual instructions lead a child successfully through each of the 18 activities. The full color illustrations present central scientific concepts which allow children to discover the "why" as well as the "how" of these great projects. Bring the fun and learning further by utilizing the animations that compliment the book on the ScienceWiz website to deepen and extend comprehension.

The award winning ScienceWiz line got its start in 1995 when we released our first title ScienceWiz Electricity. Our line of science kits stemmed from Dr. Penny Norman's volunteer work teaching science in her children's elementary schools and her ScienceWiz after school and summer programs. With initial development supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Franklin Foundation, each of our kits is created with the goal of teaching fundamental scientific concepts to children through hands-on play. From our offices in El Sobrante, CA we work hard towards our goal of providing children a basic foundation in science. Each new title we release is focused on a distinct topic. With so many disciplines in science, our work may never be finished!

The K'nex education DNA, replications and Transcription set is of better quality...

For the price, I was pleasantly surprised with the educational value of this kit. I purchased it mainly to use the hands-on DNA helix in a Forensic Science class. It does a great job of showing DNA and replication. We completed most of the experiments in the kit with easily-available household items. The kit did offer two other optioins to the denatured alcohol mentioned by another reviewer. We used regular rubbing alcohol for that experiment and it worked fine. The included booklet does a nice job of overviewing the subject with pictures illustrating concepts.

I have just received this DNA kit and it is just what I had hoped. The experiments are easy to follow with pictures to guide you and there are plenty of different experiments to try. There seems to be lots of information included in the experiment book. The actual DNA model pieces are smaller than I expected.

I purchased this product for its experiments. The product itself arrived before his first day off from school which was great timing.

The product itself is packaged very well. If you use it properly, you will never have any missing pieces because everything has its place. I planned an entire homeschooling day and used this as a supplement to the Science class. My son and I did the banana dna experiment...that was a lot of fun. It was great to see how we could extract the dna of a fruit by following the simple steps in the book. There are other experiments and of course the lessons on dna etc.

This is definitely a great tool for helping anyone who is dna challenged understand how it works. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to have fun with Science.

This is a comprehensive DNA kit. It's easy to use and makes understanding the science of DNA understandable for the student.

It is ok! It is good to teach the students, but the material is not of great quality. Also it has a kit to extract the DNA that once you use it, it is over... it is not something that you can use over and over again. The K'nex education DNA, replications and Transcription set is of better quality...

The introductory text and hands-on projects are integrated very well. Needs adult supervisions, but perfect for my 5th and 6th grade grandsons. Fit well with what they are learning in school.

If students only knew how simple and fun this is, They would be amazed. Students could slam-dunk a science fair easily... This kit should be used by every school for Biology studies...
