All living organisms are made of cells. The projects in this kit explore the characteristics that all cells share in common: a plasma membrane, genetic material (DNA), the making of proteins and the transfer of energy. By preparing wet-mounted slides via slicing and staining the materials, you will gain an understanding and appreciation for the finer points of biology. Winner of the Scientific American Young Reader’s Book Award, this kit allows you to examine and compare the cells of items all around your environment, from semi-transparent onion cells to bugs and pond scum.
