Students kit Biology

Experimentierkoffer "Bio-Arbeitsgeräte"

A very important basis for a profound and suc-
cessful biological lesson is the carrying out of real experiments with materials specially designed for this purpose.
Important learning aims:

  • Observing with a magnifying glass
  • Collecting and observing small animals and plants or leaves
  • Observing, dissecting and preparing plant
    parts and animals
  • Preparing microscopic slides

Age 13-18
Materials for 15 work groups (for 30 children)

Technical specifications

Size of kit: 540 x 450 x 150 mm

  • 1 - Botanic experiments

    experiment "Botanic experiments"

    Experiments on the function and activity of roots. (e.g. put one plant into water by its roots, and another by its leaves. Compare them after a few hours.)

  • 2 - Plastic test tubes

    experiment "Plastic test tubes"

    Experiments on plant transpiration.

  • 3 - Double-dish

    experiment "Double-dish"

    Creating a humid chamber for germination experiments, insert moistened cotton, for use with seeds and cut stems of different plants.

  • 4 - Collecting, observing, examine and determining

    experiment "Collecting, observing, examine and determining"

    Observing seeds, buds, blossoms, fruits, bulbs, stalks, and bark in their entirety and in longitudinal and cross-sections.

  • 5 - Triple magnifier

    experiment "Triple magnifier"

    Observations of living and dead insects and other small animals (anatomy, posture, organs of locomotion like wings and legs, mouthparts, and organs for seeing and feeling).

  • 6 - Dissecting needle and tweezers

    experiment "Dissecting needle and tweezers"

    Use tweezers principally for grasping or holding objects to be examined or observed, especially very tiny objects, instead of using your fingers or hands.

  • 7 - Knife and special scissors

    experiment "Knife and special scissors"

    Cutting longitudinal and cross-sections of parts of plants which grow above or beneath the soil, and mushrooms.

  • 8 - Microtome

    experiment "Microtome"

    The microtome is a very safe and easy to handle instrument to sectioning botanical material.

  • 9 - Pooter for small insects

    experiment "Pooter for small insects"

    With the pooter, small insects, spiders and seeds can be collected by carefully sucking them into the pooter. To take the specimen out of the pooter, the bottom of the flask can be removed easily.

  • 10 - Preparing a specimen to be viewed on a microscope

    experiment "Preparing a specimen to be viewed on a microscope"

    Objects that are going to be viewed on a microscope slide may be prepared as a wet mount using water. The specimen e.g. a cut from a plant stem is placed in the centre of the microscopic slide.

  • 11 - Dropper

    experiment "Dropper"

    The dropper is used for occasional moistening of the seeds and for wetting the microscopic slides. The dropper is also suitable for distributing oil on a water surface.

  • 12 - Flower and leaf press

    experiment "Flower and leaf press"

    Pressing flowers and other plant parts with one and two cotyledons (seed leaves) for comparison.

  • 13 - Rapid scale

    experiment "Rapid scale"

    Determining increase and decrease of moisture in bulbs, plant parts and mosses.
