Classroom Kits


Captivating Science Education

Biotechnology Explorer™ Kits enable educators to bring inquiry, the scientific method, and hands-on experiments into their classrooms. The kits provide relevant, engaging, hands-on activities that teach critical thinking skills, drive home scientific concepts based on real world issues, and enable students everywhere to experience the feeling of curiosity and discovery.

BioRad’s Biotechnology Explorer Kits are designed for life science education — including AP Biology and Biotechnology courses — at the high school, community college, and university levels. Several kits are aligned directly with the AP Biology curriculum:
