Size Exclusion Chromatography Kit

Size Exclusion Chromatography Kit

Recent changes in teaching standards have reshaped middle school science instruction. Both the Common Core Standards and Next-Generation Science Standards (NGSS) place increased emphasis on understanding scientific methodology combined with reasoning, interpretation of findings, and drawing conclusions. The NGSS particularly emphasizes combining scientific and engineering principles and methods to develop useful knowledge across the scientific disciplines while simultaneously teaching core concepts. The Biotechnology Explorer™ program provides middle-school students with real-world science skills: the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data.
