Classroom Kit Lending Library-The Center for Nucleic Acids Science and Technology - Carnegie Mellon University

Classroom Kit Lending Library

DNAZone and the University of Pittsburgh's Chemistry Department have partnered to create classroom kits for grades 4-12. The kits are designed to help middle school and high school teachers bring science, technology, engineering and math into their classrooms in a fun and exciting way.

Lesson plans and student activity sheets for each classroom kit can be downloaded here. The kits, which contain all of the necessary materials for a teacher-led science experiment and lesson, are available free of charge from the lending library. Kits consist of one set of teacher materials and twelve sets of student materials, which can be used comfortably in classrooms of up to 40 students. And, each kit fulfills one or more of the Pennsylvania Common Core standards as outlined by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
