These Teacher’s Packs are designed so that students have their own reader and materials. This Pack consists of largely non-consumables and uses robust components designed for years of classroom use. Extensions to the primary projects are feasible as there are sufficient supplies for all.

Internet animations, videos and interactives complement the classroom experiments. Supplemental internet materials allow students to progress at their own pace and to their own level of interest and detail. Contents periodically updated by scientists and educators.
