Provide a hands-on experience for students to compare conventional soybean seeds to genetically modified Roundup Ready® soybean seeds. This kit includes conventional soybean seeds, GM soybean seeds, and the testing materials to indicate which seed contains the protein responsible for making Roundup Ready® soybeans tolerant to the herbicide glyphosate.
The kit will include the following items:
· 20 conventional soybeans in a coin envelope
· 20 Genetically Modified "Roundup Ready"® soybeans in a coin envelope
· 2 QuickStix test strips
· 4 weighing boats
· 2 transfer pipettes
· 2 reaction vials or microfuge
· Additional seeds (seeds to simulate “weeds” or unwanted plants)
1 kit contains enough supplies for 1 class. If additional classes are taught, additional seed test supplies can be added or additional kits can be purchased.
This kit is designed to accompany the lesson The Science of a GMO.
GE Soybean seeds can only ship to teachers in the United States!
